Editor’s Note: Detailed biographies of each of the speakers will be published in next week’s Nisqually Valley News.
Yelm’s UFO Fest and Cosmic Symposium is a two-pronged event to meet the receptivity of a large population of people. The festival was created to please everyone “from UFO enthusiasts to skeptics.”
Some take it more seriously than others, and for those who do, the symposium features a number of speakers highly respected in the area of UFOlogy. Over three days, the Triad Theater will host the top experts in the field. Daily and package ticket rates are available.
Three-day passes are $250, $400 for VIP which includes beverages, appetizers, priority and preferred seating. Friday passes are $100, Saturday, $150, and Sunday, $125. Tickets may be shared but only one person will be admitted on a pass. All symposium events take place at the Triad Theater, 102 Yelm Ave. E. except for two, which will be held at Ramtha’s School of Enlightenment, or RSE, 10422 93rd Ave. SE, Yelm. Opening ceremonies and the Skywatch event are at Prairie Properties at the field near Yelm Cinemas and Uptown Lounge.
The location change to RSE was necessary, said festival and symposium organizer Cameron Jayne because the demand for JZ Knight’s appearance was greater than the capacity of the Triad. Visit www.thetraidartstheater.com to purchase tickets or for additional information or changes to the schedule.
