The Haunted Rock Island Roadhouse is located in the heart of Historic Rock Island, Illinois, on the mighty Mississippi River and is the perfect location for both new and experienced investigators as it has a very mischievous past: not only has it served as a YMCA (1913-1977), but as a brothel run by the infamous Helen Van Dale, a speakeasy, has ties to the mob (John Looney and Al Capone), housed a murderer, had multiple deaths, and so much more. There has even been spirits of American soldiers present, as they would stay at the YMCA free of charge if they showed up in uniform. Many who visit or investigate this extremelt active location walke away with personal, spine-tingling experiences.

 

With over 120 vendors joining us from coast to coast, this event will be a gateway to exploring the unknown. There will without a doubt be something for everyone. Whether your into the paranormal, big foot, cryptids, extraterrestrials, metaphysical, crystals, herbalism, astrology, mysticism, spiritualism, alternative healing practices, readings and so much more every fan of the esoteric will want to be a part of the extraordinary conference.

 

There will be a VIP Investigation led by the extremely talented Rob Stachowicz, Sara Villani and Dani Marie of Get Haunted/Paranormally Blonde from 8 p.m. - Midnight.
