More about Audacity Fest 2019

Audacity Fest 2019 is being put on by Nomadness Travel Tribe, which is the brainchild of Evita Robinson. As an original resident of Albany, New York, she has lived around the world, calling Japan, France, and Thailand home.

More than just a travel club, Nomadness is a tribe, and Audacity Fest begs the question: what do YOU have the audacity to do in your life? Made by and for travelers of color, Audacity Fest brings together the travel community, people, conversations, panels, parties, and even special guest performances. Nomadness covers it all and is bringing it right to you during Audacity Fest 2019.


Evita Robinson and the rest of Nomadness kick off Audacity Fest 2019 with a tour of the National Civil Rights Museum at 6PM on Friday. The following day, the events are broken down into activities taking place at the Main Stage, Gate 1, Gate 2, and at the constructed Workshop.

Some of the highlighted activities and workshops during Saturday include seminars and discussions about traveling with children, budget travel hacks, remote working, travel writing and even learning a new language for the road.

On Sunday, the event ends with an Awards Ceremony, plus a fireside chat with founder Evita Robinson.
