GHOSTLY TALK RADIO RETURNS!
One of the long-time highlights of
the Haunted America Conference was the presence of the Ghostly
Talk Radio crew, the best radio show ever produced on the
paranormal. The Speaker Panel, hosted by Scott and Doug, was
such a hit last year that we're bringing it back for 2017!
THE PLANET WEIRD TRAVELING MUSEUM OF THE PARANORMAL AND
Speaking of big hits, we're also bringing back Greg & Dana from
Planet Weird HQ to not only dust off their artifacts of the strange, bizarre, and haunted
-- but to speak about their experiences, too! Free for conference attendees, you can see, visit, touch,
and handle all of the haunted, cursed, and downright weird stuff
that they'll have in the museum. See what's new this year!
American Hauntings in Haunted Alton, Illinois!
According to legend, author
Mark Twain once called Alton a "dismal little river town,"
largely thanks to the dark history that the city had already
endured prior to its heyday as a thriving river port. From those
days, through the early 1900s, Alton saw more than its share of
death, disease, disaster, violence, murder and even the scars of
the Civil War. Now, come see how the events of the past have
created the hauntings of what is now being called "one of the
most haunted small towns in America." This year, the Haunted
America Conference is returning to Alton -- the perfect setting
for our #21 ghost event! For generations, Alton has
boasted a long history of ghostly sightings, eerie
events, and unexplained encounters -- often during our annual
conference! This might be your chance to experience the many
hauntings of Alton for yourself!
America's Original Ghost Conference!
America's Original Ghost Conference (Founded in 1997 and often
imitated, but never equaled) is back for our 21st year and will be held over the weekend of June
23-24, 2017 at the Atrium Hotel in Haunted Alton, Illinois. Join
us as we return to "one of the most haunted small towns in
America" and present new and returning favorite speakers on
ghosts, hauntings, monsters, the supernatural, and the
unexplained. The 2017 event will include lectures and
presentations, a speaker's panel, haunted tours, ghost hunts,
"strange stuff," workshops and much more! It's our 21st of history and hauntings!
It's Time to Discover America's Longest-Running
Join us in Alton and explore this historic and haunted region with our

Conference and we'll be returning to our most haunted city yet
