Are you fascinated by how language works? Would you like to find more great linguistics podcasts? Here’s a week of fun pop linguistics events for you!

LingFest is a program of online linguistics events aimed at a general audience, beginning Friday, 10 February 2023. Just as a fringe festival compiles a list of independently-organised events on a particular theme, LingFest is an way for linguistics communicators to organise an online event, a way for fans to meet fellow linguistics enthusiasts (use #lingfest), and a handy way to find out about more lingcommers who you might want to start following!

We’re listing events on this page, with each event creator managing their own ticketing and platform. Know a lingcommer not on this list yet? Ping them on social media and ask them if they’re planning something!

If you would like to find out about events happening as part of LingFest, fill out this form to sign up for a limited number of emails when the program is finalised.

If you would like to submit an event, meetup, or show, fill out this form.

There are no fees to submit an event for LingFest. You can set up your show using your preferred platform, and run it as any combination of paid/free/patreon/donation ticketing. Note that we reserve the right to reach out for clarification if it’s not evident how your event is a) related to linguistics and b) suitable for the general public.


You can use this converter to figure out when events are scheduled in your local time zone.

This converter is good too.
