Ghost Conference

David Snower, an Oregon Ghost Conference attendee, tells a ghost story illuminated by a campfire during the 2017 conference’s Ghost Stories Bonfire event in Seaside.

SEASIDE — The Oregon Ghost Conference returns to the Seaside Civic & Convention Center from Friday, March 29, through Sunday, March 31. The conference has catered to paranormal and metaphysical enthusiasts for the past eight years.

Main events include the world premiere of the documentary “All Around Us” at 10 p.m. Friday at the Times Theatre. The film looks at the life of Portland-area psychic medium Seth Michael.

Another main event features Seattle-area psychic Ankasha Amenti, who shares spirit messages in a gallery-style reading.

Mini-events include visual spirit communication, séances, a group past life regression session, and a sound bath featuring Tibetan healing instruments.

The conference offers more than 30 classes, including a four-part boot camp for paranormal investigators. It also features 16 speakers with topics ranging from remote viewing to haunted ships and lighthouses.

Those wishing to experience ghosts will have plenty of opportunities. The conference features guided paranormal investigations and ghost walks, including a Sunday tour in Astoria. Families can enjoy the Paranormal Kids Zone sponsored by the Portland Ghostbusters.

Conference admission is $10 for the weekend; kids under 12 are free. Learn more at
