Looking for a unique and insightful way to spend the Halloween season? Well, we at Rogue Planet highly suggest heading to The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference, which runs October 14th through October 16th!

The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference, now in its second year, is a celebration of the study of topics like ghosts, UFOs, cryptozoology (the study of mystery animals, like Bigfoot), and folklore and culture. The conference features guest speakers, panel discussions, tours, workshops, a film screening, a vendor floor with 50 tables, and after parties. It will primarily take place in the UWM Student Union, with several related events at other nearby locations. 

The conference is bringing in some pretty big names this year, with some notable speakers pictured below. IMG_0098

The speakers are as follows:

Cryptozoology expert Loren Coleman, who has written dozens of books on the subject and is curator of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

Chase Kloetzke, Deputy Director of Investigations and Special Case Manager for the Mutual UFO Network

Katrina Weidman, star of the hit reality show Paranormal Lockdown.

Elizabeth Saint, proprietor of Ghostly Gadgets and co-star of Destination America’s Ghosts of Shepherdstown.

Linda S. Godfrey and Chad Lewis, both longtime researchers and authors of strange phenomenon in Wisconsin.

Also, a  special event dubbed “The Roswell Debate”, will take place between researchers Donald R. Schmitt and Mark O’Connell on UFO investigation techniques and the 1947 Roswell case. The debate will be moderated by David Henning, head of Lakeland College’s debate and forensics program. Henning has over 30 years of debate experience. His students will assist in the debate.IMG_0102

Many other speakers are scheduled throughout the conference as well, and can be seen at the conference website below.  This is sure to be a very exciting and spooky weekend, just in time for Halloween.

So whether you live in the greater Wisconsin area, or even if you don’t, there’s still plenty of time to plan the trip there for the whole family. Stay spooky, and we’ll see you in Milwaukee!
