BAHFest Seattle 2017

BAHFest is a celebration of well-argued and thoroughly researched but completely incorrect scientific theory. Our brave speakers present their bad theories in front of a live audience and a panel of judges with real science credentials, who together determine who takes home the coveted BAHFest trophy. And eternal glory, of course.

Come join us on Tuesday, October 17th, 2017 at Temple De Hirsch Sinai located at 1441 – 16th Avenue, Seattle, WA, 98122

Tickets are now on sale!
