Bigfoot Weekend, Ohio

With all the Bigfoot / Ketchum DNA headlines flying around here is a good opportunity to learn more about Sasquatch.


Every year hundreds of people gather in Eastern Ohio for one of the world’s premiere Bigfoot events, The Ohio Bigfoot Conference. This year will be no exception. With a great speaker lineup of Loren Coleman, Dr. Esteban Sarmiento, Thom Powell, Mark Maisel and Dr. Russ Jones the Salt Fork State Park lodge is sure to be packed from end to end on Saturday night. Each year this event seems to grow with more attendees and more events, it’s become so much more than a conference, it’s an entire weekend of activities. For this year, Marc DeWerth and the Ohio Bigfoot Organization have scheduled a full weekend of Bigfooting and fun.

An advanced hike will be offered during the early afternoon at one of the states more active Sasquatch areas. The hike promises miles of trail hiking with hills, creeks and other challenging obstacles that will leave you dirty, sweaty and grinning from ear to ear.

Later in the evening there will be a VIP dinner where you can mingle with the conference presenters and hear stories of adventures and intrigue. This event is a “can’t miss” evening and recommended by all of those who have attended in the past.

The evening caps off with a meet and greet at the lodge. This is your opportunity to share your own experiences with the speakers, friends and all those who attend. During this informal get-together many will share their knowledge of all things Bigfoot.

The conference starts at 2:00PM in the main lodge meeting room. The lobby will be filled with vendor tables selling a wide variety of Sasquatch related items. Be sure to arrive early and check out all the great merchandise. The lodge will also be offering lunch specials before the conference begins. The speaker presentations are always interesting and educational with time at the end to ask your own questions.
