Sasquatch is a popular phenomenon and people won’t find a better opportunity to explore the subject than at the Sasquatch Summit event. The conference on November 16-18 at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino (QBRC) in Ocean Shores is a great place to listen to some knowledgeable guest speakers and ask those compelling questions surrounding this mysterious and evasive creature.
The Pacific Northwest is the Bigfoot capital of the world with sightings going back for more than a century, so it’s perfect that the event is held here. Join hundreds of Sasquatch enthusiasts for this conference full of memories and incomparable insight. The conference is popular and always growing, so make sure to get a ticket for the weekend for only $35. Tickets can be purchased at the door, but if people book a room at the Quinault Sweet Grass Hotel or a two-night stay at the QBRC starting at $289, they will get two complimentary tickets to Sasquatch Summit and two T-shirts, too.
If anyone is after a hands-on experience, people can buy tickets for $100 that give access to private workshops on Sunday in addition to entry to everything else at the conference. There is a total of three workshops that are taught by Joe Hauser, Dr. Jeff Meldrum and John Pickering. The workshops give those attending exclusive tools and insights on Sasquatch.
There will also be the chance to hear a variety of speakers and event goers can spend time looking at themed vendors, casts, listening to testimonies and a whole lot more.
Good music makes any event complete and a former Nashville staff songwriter, Lenny Green, who currently writes and performs music about Sasquatch, will be performing live.
On Friday, people can go and listen to the Olympic Project‘s David Ellis, who will show audio clips that have been recorded in several locations as well as ways to tell what clips are real and which have been fabricated. There will also be a meet and greet with the researchers and a forum where people are welcome to get up and talk about their Sasquatch ventures.
As the party continues into Saturday, Butch Pope, a tribal elder of the Quinault Indian Nation, will bless the conference and speak about his family’s encounters with “C’iatqo.” Afterward, the day is full of established and varied speakers including:

- Olympic Project: The Olympic Project is a team of all kinds of experts from trackers to biologists that work together with a goal of proving the existence of Bigfoot. They use professional techniques like DNA analysis, cameras to collect footage, and habitat study, and they try to make sure all that they do is non-invasive to any possible Sasquatch habitats.
