Last Call for VIPs!

Monday, October 10 is the last day you can buy VIP tickets. After that, you will cry out for more opportunities to buy them, but they will fall on deaf ears as the VIP option will be closed!

Our VIP ticket is your best available con experience. It gives you an exclusive dinner party and swag tote bag, admission to the conference and Saturday night Raven’s Ball party. It also helps support the conference and our programming and is priced at just $75. Here’s more info on what you get:

VIP Dinner Party

Takes place Friday, October 14, 6pm at the Mitchell Park Pavilion on the Lagoon. Located in Mitchell Park, the pavilion is a lovely setting for a Fall dinner party. This is the same park that the Mitchell Park Conservatory (known as The Domes) is located in. The Domes are open (well, 2 out of 3) until 5pm, if you want to show up early for a stroll through their botanical gardens.


We have a wonderful food menu for this event, a mix of southern comfort food and street style eats. Tasty hors d’oeuvres, sausage paella, street tacos, and vegan options will be available. We will have assorted beers (including a seasonal), a red and white wine option, and Great Northern Distilling Rye Whiskey and bourbon Vanguard Whiskey as an after dinner drink. Non-alcoholic beverages will also be available.


Janet Schiff

Ticket holders are seated at a table that includes at least one or more guest speakers and we will have music provided by cellist Janet Schiff (part of the acclaimed music duo Nineteen Thirteen). You might find yourself at a table with an expert on cryptozoology, a ghostlore researcher, or a leading UFO investigator.

VIP Tote Bag

The tote bag will include your pass, which gets you into both days of the conference for free, your conference program, a pass to our Saturday night Raven’s Ball, and about two dozen swag items from our vendors, sponsors, and supporters. Includes magnets, stickers, buttons, a voodoo doll keychain, water bottle, copy of Fate magazine, bookmarks, coupons and download codes and more.

Let the Cello Lead You

Let the sounds of the cello lead you to our VIP dinner, a most unique soiree, taking place the evening of Friday, October 14 at the Mitchell Park Pavilion on the Lagoon (near the Domes). After arriving, you might find yourself seated next to a foremost authority on cryptozoology, someone who actively investigates UFO sightings, or members of a team that dedicated to capturing evidence that ghosts exist. It’s a chance to be social and enjoy dinner with Milwaukee Paranormal Conference speakers, behind the scenes staff, and your fellow VIPs. Food and drink will be provided, and you’ll be treated to a performance by acclaimed cellist Janet Schiff.

Janet creates music that is beautiful, rich, haunting, mixing old  (one of her cellos, made in Romania, is 103 years old) with new– electronic loopers allow her to layer her riffs. It gives her music an “enigmatic quality” as Milwaukee Paranormal Conference director Tea Krulos described when he profiled her band Nineteen Thirteen in a 2011 article. The other half of Nineteen Thirteen is the brilliant percussionist Victor DeLorenzo, founding member of Milwaukee’s favorite sons, the Violent Femmes.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer this intimate solo performance for our VIPs.


In addition to the dinner party, VIPs get into both days (Oct.15-16) of our conference at the UWM Student Union for free. Check out our updated schedule and start planning which talks, panels, and workshops you want to check out.

VIPs also get into our Raven’s Ball masquerade party for free. This is taking place Saturday night (Oct.15) after the conference at the Irish Cultural and Heritage Center and features performances from Dead Man’s Carnival, Quasimondo theater, Sunspot, Gnarrenschiff and Tamarind Tribal Belly Dance, Subspace, and more. It also features a big costume contest. Check out a Facebook event page here:
