NOVEMBER 5th Special RSVP Pre-Show Event
We are less than a week away
Wild & Weird CON is a premier event featuring all aspects of the paranormal and focusing on those who study and research these subjects. From UFOs to Cryptids, paranormal research is growing and the interest in such phenomena has seen a surge thanks in part to attitude shifts spurred on by recent government and scientific breakthroughs in technology and biology. West Virginia has one of the most noted and famous spots in Wild & Weird history. It is home to such legends as the Mothman, the Flatwoods Monster as well as scores of UFO sightings. It is also home to the Green Bank Radio Astronomy Observatory. Some have suggested that West Virginia rivals Roswell when it comes to it's importance in UFO history alone. But West Virginia has far more to offer than just UFOs, it has many reports of Bigfoot and other cryptids and serious research has been conducted not only by us but by fellow researchers that suggests the Wild & Wonderful hills of the mountain state may hold secrets that could predate the earliest settlers.
During our years of looking into the paranormal we have had the opportunity to vend many shows and we love to get out there, we also love to talk and teach about these various phenomena. So several years ago we envisioned and set out to create something West Virginia could be proud of, not just an expo or convention, but an event focusing on education and inspiration to ensure the continued longevity of such research and to give the state a rightful seat at the table of other places known for such research. We contacted some of the best local authors, artists and speakers in an attempt to bring that vision to life and last year we scheduled the first Wild & Weird CON which, like everything in 2020 had to be postponed due to covid. However, we were fortunate enough to be able to reschedule for late 2021 and finally we are now ready to bring you an amazing event where we hope you will learn some things, meet some great people, have some fun and help to promote this amazing Wild and Weird state we call West Virginia.
