While stories of cryptid sightings across the Lone Star State abound, southeast Texas and east Texas appear to be the main stomping grounds of one particular cryptid that we all know and love: Bigfoot.

In fact, the area is so rife with alleged sightings that in Huntsville, enthusiasts, biologists, and skeptics alike have put together the Southeast Texas Bigfoot Conference.

The conference will feature a bevy of speakers, which include researchers, field biologists, TV personalities, eyewitnesses, and other enthusiasts. Vendors will be at the event as well, so you’ll have a chance to find any type of Sasquatch paraphernalia you’ve been itching to get your mitts on.

Evidence collection seminars/classes will be held. In these talks, samples of alleged evidence will be presented, along with tutorials on how to collect samples and properly assemble what the experts call a “collection kit.”

The conference will also feature some juicy door prizes, which all attendees are eligible to wine, and a silent auction. All proceeds from the silent auction will be donated to The Lucky Fin Project and Honor Flight.

The Lucky Fin Project provides support and research for children with birth defects. Honor Flight provides military veterans with transportation to Washington D.C. to visit the memorials for the wars in which they fought.
