Advanced Hike - Noon to 3:00 p.m.- Free Event
While we are still considering the location of the hike, which will be revealed when we meet up at the lodge, the conference staff have an extensive knowledge of many areas within the Sasquatch Triangle that have a history of bigfoot reports and activity. This will be an adventurous hike, it will likely involve traveling a number of miles, perhaps off trail, definitely with hills, creeks and other potential challenges, you will probably get dirty, but it will be fun.
VIP Only Speaker Dinner - 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. - Purchase your own meal off the menu
VIPs get an exclusive invitation at a designated off site restaurant, others will be put on a waiting list in case there is space. This is a chance to meet the speakers in an informal, social setting while sharing a meal. 2012 was the first year for this event and it was popular as the speakers were gracious in sharing their time, signing autographs and talking with the VIPs.
Informal Meet and Greet - 9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. - Free Event
Join the speakers, conference organizers and attendees for an informal time of fun and bigfoot talk at the lodge. See some old friends or make some new ones while talking bigfoot with other people who get it. This event is open to all who attend the conference.

What happens when you concentrate over 100 years of collective bigfoot research experience and some of the best field researchers in the midwest in one place? Some fun and an excellent learning opportunities will ensue. Join us in traveling from training station to training station for short, intensive seminars geared for people who are new to this topic, or for people who want to sharpen and expand their skill set. You will be able to choose from a variety of topics including; casting, tracking, surveillance, basic and advanced gear for your backpack, interviewing, selecting search areas (you provide us with your location, we will give you some ideas on prospective areas close by) and how to network and develop leads. As we confirm presenters we will announce further details, but one of the fun things about this event is you never know who will show up and want to share their expertise. This event was popular last year, and the time moved quickly.
A cookout will be held in association with the festival. Our friends at the United States Bigfoot Research Association will be preparing and hosting the cookout. Donations will be accepted and appreciated, but it is part of the free event.
A family friendly hike will also be offered as part of the festival from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. This hike will be in the Salt Fork area, offer easier hiking options and is intended to be informational and entertaining. Learn about some of the notorious sightings and locations for bigfoot in the park.
Our speakers often graciously attend this event and it is a good opportunity to learn from them and interact in a more informal and personal setting.
