The Pacific Northwest is home to cutting-edge science, myth, folklore and research on the topics of aliens and the unexplained. From February 23-25, Quinault Beach Resort and Casino will host the ever-popular annual UFO/Paranormal Summit for visitors of every shape and size.

Event founder Johnny Manson continues to shape and guide the summit’s schedule according to requests and fan favorite elements. This year he introduced private workshops with three of the weekend’s speakers. These are limited to only 15 participants per panel and filling up quickly.

“This is the first time we have offered workshops, but at the request of many, we decided to offer them on Thursday,” says Manson. Sessions relate to current research, evidence or presentation. “The three hosts are Alien Hunter Darrel Sims, MUFON State Director James Clarkson and retired naval officer Howard Batie. Guests who opt for the workshops will get to experience all three and includes admission into Friday and Saturday,” explains Manson.

On Friday, February 24, guests can participate in the ever-popular Meet and Greet and Witness Town Hall. From 6:00 to 10:00 p.m., Manson invites guests to “mingle with the researchers and listen to experiencers share their story. We will also have Aleta Debee and psychic JoAnne Clarkson giving talks.”

Saturday, February 25, consists of “a marathon of presentations” by experts and researchers in the field. From 9:00 a.m. until a question and answer panel starting at 4:50 p.m., the day is full of lectures, evidence, theories and information.
