Justin Barrett, director of Oxford University’s Cognition, Religion, and Theology project, believes that people “have a bias for believing in the supernatural.” This is why stories of UFO’s, aliens, and mysterious creatures fill our cultural histories since the beginning.
Whether you have doubts or, in the spirit of the X-Files, just want to believe, the upcoming UFO/Paranormal Summit at Quinault Beach Resort and Casino on February 23-25 can help. This will be the 2nd year for the event and is the brainchild of Johnny Manson of Sasquatch Summit fame.
As part of the UFO/Paranormal Summit, Johnny Manson (right) is organizing an open mic.
Manson, a Grays Harbor radio and television personality, explains that through the Summit “we are hoping to cover everything paranormal: ancient sea creatures, Sasquatch (there is a paranormal aspect), UFO, alien abduction, implants, ghosts, fairies, and the research and physical evidence surrounding these topics.”
There will be 10 speakers over the course of two days, many from MUFON, the Mutual UFO Network, and SUFON, the Seattle UFO Network. These experts in the field were glad to participate in the Summit. Says Manson, “MUFON members had attended last year’s Sasquatch Summit and were very impressed with how it was run. When they heard that we were going to do a UFO/Paranormal Summit, they were very interested in participating. They have been a huge help.”
UFO/Paranormal Summit Speaker Maurene Morgan is a Washington State Mutual UFO Network (MUFON) State Section Director and Certified Field Investigator.
Aside from expert lectures, there will be a Witness Town Hall, meet and greet social, vendors, art, and food and drink options provided by Quinault Beach Resort and Casino. The hotel will also be offering event packages which include a two night stay and entry to the Summit. There are a limited number of rooms available with the discount code UFO so book early by calling 888-461-2214. Only staying one night? March and April discounts are available for Sunday through Thursday stays with code WIN1.
Tickets for the event are available online or at the door. A 2-day pass is $35 and includes all activities in the Great Hall, Hall Lobby, tshirt and goodies.
Manson hopes to match the approximately 600 attendees who attended the recent Sasquatch Summit. He and his team are also accepting vendor applications for the event.

In the early months of 2015, there were more than 1,100 UFO sightings nationwide. Washington is third on the list of states with the most sightings overall. If the possibility of aliens doesn’t intrigue you, consider that a Pew Research poll reports that “nearly one-in-five U.S. adults (18%) say they’ve seen or been in the presence of a ghost…An even greater share – 29% – say they have felt in touch with someone who has already died.”
It’s been reported that more than half of Americans believe in intelligent alien life, with more than 75% of responders thinking such aliens have visited Earth. Wherever you stand on this issue, the UFO/Paranormal Summit welcomes you to experience the unusual, close to home.
The Quinault Beach Resort is located at 78 State Route 115 in Ocean Shores.
