Every January, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa, a Historic Hotel of America located here in the Arkansas Ozarks, invites aspiring ghost hunters to come and learn investigative techniques during an actual paranormal examination of “America’s Most Haunted Hotel”. The dates for 2021 are January 8th-9th, and January 15th-16th. This year’s weekends will feature two of the country’s top ghost investigators, Larry Flaxman and David Harkins.
Each of the two days are full of paranormal related activities and fellowship. Planned activities include instruction as to “what to do” and “what not to do” during an investigation; nightly talks on the ghostly history of the hotel highlighted by noted findings; and several ghost hunts extending from sundown to sunrise, both guided and those that participants will venture on their own. Each weekend concludes with “the reveal” breakfast on Sunday morning where attendees share stories and experiences from the weekend hunts.
The 2021 ESP Weekends will embrace strict Covid-19 protocols to ensure the safety of attendees. Each weekend is being limited to 30 people per weekend with attendees being split up into two activity groups of 15 maximum each.
The ESP Weekend conference fee includes a guided investigation, behind the scenes access to the most haunted spaces of the property, enlightening seminars, and training for paranormal investigators of all experience levels. Conference attendees also receive admission to the Crescent’s nightly ghost tour, a discount to the 1905 Basin Park Hotel Paranormal Investigation, hospitality breaks, and “the reveal” breakfast on Sunday, plus discounted ESP Weekend Crescent Hotel room rates.
