California Freethought Day says
California Freethought Day combines the fun and atmosphere of a fair with the education and activism of a conference. It's a festival of freethought. We'll have speakers and live entertainment, family activities, an authors' panel with Q&A, and more!

Our theme for 2016 has not yet been announced, but check back soon. Learn about themes in prior years.

Freethought Day dates back to 1692, during the time of the Salem Witch Trials. Massachusetts Governor William Phips wrote, on October 12, about the quagmire that the trials had degenerated into, in part by a reliance on "evidence" of a non-objective nature and especially "spectral evidence" in which the accusers claimed to see devils and other phantasms consorting with the accused.
