This is gonna be a big one!

Join us for the first ever Smoky Mountain Bigfoot Conference on July 27, 2019 at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. Doors open at 9am and we go until 5pm. This event is open to the public but advance tickets are required. VIP/reserved seating tickets are sold out.

We have some of America's most experienced Bigfoot researchers and investigators including Cliff Barackman, Bigfoot Field Researcher and co-host of Animal Planet’s Finding Bigfoot to share stories of their investigation and encounters. There will also be time for a Q and A after each speaker.

Boxed Lunch is available for an additional cost but there is also the option to leave for lunch to experience some of Gatlinburg's famous eateries. Plans are in the works for a VIP dinner experience with Cliff and possibly a hike out in the Smoky Mountains that will have limited availability and only be available to ticket holders. Email announcements will be sent.

This is gearing up to be the biggest Bigfoot conference in the southeast and tickets will sell out fast, so get yours today.
