Conference director Tea Krulos questions audience members on the legend of Haunchyville during the “Wisconsin’s Wildest Urban Legends” panel.

It is really hard for me to list just a few highlights of the Milwaukee Paranormal Conference for me. There are just too, too many. I’m hoping to give you all a more detailed day by day report about all the awesome stuff that happened over the weekend next week, but first I need to ask you something: please help us out.

Putting on an event like this is very expensive. Right now we are hosting a GoFundMe campaign to help us out of the red. This money is not going in our pocket, it is being used to pay of things like venue and to pay back loans. We are off to a strong start today, but have a ways to go. Thank you to everyone who has contributed, every bit helps. Here’s the page: https://www.gofundme.com/savempc

Another way people can help support us is by buying merch. We have a fair amount of merch left over including t-shirts, tank tops, wooden buttons, stickers, prints, coffee mugs, and more. You can find it all on our Square store and get it shipped or arrange a pick up with us: https://squareup.com/market/milwaukee-para-con

I also want to plug a couple of events:

Milwaukee Paranormal Conference offers a lot of all ages programming, but we’re glad to be pairing up with Sex Ed for Adults to present an adult only “Unleashing Sacred Energies with Sex Magickwith featured presenters Christopher Lee Jensen of Anwar Firestorm and Vonnie Rich of Milwaukee Pagan Unity Council. It’s happening Sunday, October 23rd at the Riverwest Public House Cooperative (815 E. Locust St., MKE, 53212) 6pm / Must be 21 years old or older / Free
We will also be tabling with leftover conference merch, so stop in and buy some at a discount!

Also, Tea Krulos and Allison Jornlin (winner of the 2016 Milwaukee Paranormal Conference Wisconsin Researcher of the Year Award) will both have short talks as part of the Central Library’s “Haunted Central” activities this weekend. On Saturday, Oct. 22 from 5:57pm (official time for sundown) to 10pm, and Sunday, Oct.23 1-5pm the Central Library will have a variety of fun activities including a Sleepy Hollow photo booth, a screening of The Blob, mask making, displays, a screaming contest, and a stargazing session on the roof.

We’ll both be giving the same talk twice each day, so you’ll have 4 opportunities to see it.

First Annual Milwaukee Paranormal Conference is Happening June 2015!

What: Milwaukee Paranormal Conference is a day full of speakers and activities related to the study of the paranormal.
When: Takes place Saturday, June 6, 2015 12-7pm at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center, 2133 W. Wisconsin Ave. Admission is free.

***

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.

The event is organized by Tea Krulos, who spent over a year traveling and meeting experts on these topics. Krulos joined various investigators in the field to explore haunted houses, creepy forests, and desert landscapes said to be the roaming grounds of these strange entities. This is all documented in his upcoming book Monster Hunters, to be released by Chicago Review Press in June 2015.

To celebrate this release, Krulos was inspired to organize a paranormal conference. These conferences occur through 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 on two separate stages, a vendor area, and other activities.
Whether you are an expert on the paranormal or just curious, this will be a fun-filled, interesting day exploring the unknown!
