You are cordially invited to a Tea Party...

On April 15, millions of libertarians will gather across the country to voice their opposition to the out-of-control spending and taxation started by the Bush administration and carried on by Obama.

The Libertarian Party cordially invites all freedom-loving Americans to join those libertarians, and all advocates of economic freedom, at a "Tea Party" near them.  Below you will find just a few of the thousands of Tea Parties being held nationwide on April 15.

If you are sponsoring a Tea Party, and it's not on this list, contact the Libertarian Party at media@lp.org to add it.
