To celebrate the release of his new book Monster Hunters, a look at the lifestyle of paranormal investigators, Milwaukee author Tea Krulos decided to have an entire day dedicated to the strange and unusual.
The Milwaukee Paranormal Conference will feature guest speakers, panels and presentations by some of Wisconsin’s most well-known experts in the fields of Ufology, cryptozoology and ghost hunting, as well as documentary screenings, vendors and other great activities.
About the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference
Do ghosts exist? What about the Bigfoot or UFOs? Well, now you have a place to ponder these questions and other mysteries of the universe.
Milwaukee Paranormal Conference will tackle the subjects of paranormal investigation (commonly known as ghost hunting), cryptozoology (the study of unknown creatures like Bigfoot and Lake Monsters), ufology (aliens and UFOs), and folklore. Paranormal conferences occur throughout the country, including Chicago, Minneapolis, and even Appleton, but there hasn’t been a paranormal conference in Milwaukee since 2005.
Until now. The event will take place in the beautiful Irish Culture and Heritage Center (downtown, near the Marquette campus) and will feature over a dozen speakers and panels on two separate stages.
There will also be a vendor hall and other activities like a Bigfoot Photo Booth and a listening station where people can listen to recordings of alleged ghost voices.
Conference guest speakers include Donald R. Schmitt, a leading expert on the alleged Roswell, New Mexico UFO crash and best-selling author (UFO Crash at Roswell, Witness to Roswell) who says he has a “smoking gun”—actual Kodachrome photo slides of one of the Roswell aliens. He’ll be revealing these photo at a press conference in Mexico City on May 5 and will talk more about them here in Milwaukee!
Other guests include Linda Godfrey, the author who broke the story of the Beast of Bray Road, a mysterious werewolf-like creature spotted around Elkhorn, Wisconsin. She has authored sixteen books, many of them on mysterious creature sightings. Noah Leigh, founder of Paranormal Investigators of Milwaukee and Allison Jornlin, a Milwaukee ghost lore expert, will be giving presentations as well as members of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization and the Mutual UFO Network, among others.
