“WE NEED MONEY.”
Hello, Milwaukee Paranormal Conference fans. Some of you I know, some of you I’m meeting for the first time.
One of the great things about MPC is that it’s always been a DIY style event, a “People’s Holiday” as our friends at the Riverwest 24 like to say. We are not bankrolled by a casino, a talent agency, or a production company. “We” are one crazy guy and a lot of talented volunteers who dedicate their time and skills because they believe the MPC is a fantastic, interesting, and fun event. We have social capital for days, and I am proud of that.
Actual monetary capital has always been difficult. Right now we need to meet some financial deadlines. Here’s how you can help!
–Buy tickets to the conference. Our Sunday conference is $10 and that includes access to speakers in two different rooms, two vendor rooms, and a workshop room. Programming covers a mix of paranormal investigation, cryptozoology, UFOs, and other topics. Tickets here: http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/3070451
–Buy tickets to our Friday/Saturday activities. We have a lot of unique, one time only activities going on the night of Friday the 13 and all day Saturday the 14. Some of these are free, the others are very fairly priced. Many of these have a limited capacity, help us sell these out! We have links for tickets to most of the events, still need to fill in a couple blanks. Schedule with ticket links here: https://milwaukeeparacon.com/2017/08/25/milwaukee-paranormal-conference-2017-schedule/
–Buy merch and say hi. This week we will be tabling two events.
Market of the Macabre is this Friday, Sept. 8 at Kochanski’s Concertina Beer Hall, 1920 S. 37th St. 7pm-Midnight. We will be selling tickets and merch from last year. T-shirt blow out sale: $5. Free event– lots of other great vendors and music, too!

MKE Para Con Rummage Sale is this Sunday, Sept.10 at Riverwest Public House, 815 E. Locust St., 11am-3pm. We will have tickets, merch, crafts, and oddities…lots of strange and unique items. If you have items to donate, e-mail us or stop by at 11 with the items.

–Make a donation. We still have a GoFundMe page from last year, chipping away at debt from last year. Any donations are appreciated: https://www.gofundme.com/saveMPC
-Get a vendor table. After examining the Irish Center today, we realized we have more table space then we thought, which is great because vendor tables help pay our “rent.” Tables are $60 for the day. Get more info by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
-Spread the word. Share our event on social media. Get your friends excited. If you want to print flyers to hang/ distribute, we can send you a PDF. E-mail: email@example.com
-Volunteer. Volunteers are an important part of making the events go smoothly. Volunteers get into the conference for free. Get on our growing volunteer list by e-mailing: firstname.lastname@example.org
If we can get people to start rallying and contributing in the categories listed above, we will have a great 2017 conference!
