The World’s Largest Gathering of Ayn Rand Fans
Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity to fill your summer with learning and inspiration that will last the whole year.
The Objectivist Summer Conference (OCON) is the premier gathering of Ayn Rand fans. This week-long conference, hosted annually since 2003 by the Ayn Rand Institute, is the perfect place to explore new ideas and connect with like-minded people.
At OCON, you’ll experience thoughtful and inspiring talks by top experts on Ayn Rand’s philosophy of Objectivism, take part in popular social events, attend moving artistic performances, and enjoy late-night conversations with new and old friends.
For the second year, the Ayn Rand Institute’s annual fundraising Gala will be hosted at OCON; we invite you to add the Gala to your OCON experience and support our mission of fostering a culture whose guiding principles are reason, rational self-interest, individualism, and laissez-faire capitalism.
Discover how Ayn Rand’s ideas can improve your life and your world.
Meet active-minded people who share your ideas and values.
Get inspired by great art and great achievements.
Hear from Objectivist intellectuals, experts, and professionals from fields like philosophy, education, and the arts.
