Connecticut’s Original Paranormal Convention


Comes to Stratford
Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21 from 11a.m.-6 p.m.
Baldwin Center

In 2021, Charles F. Rosenay was one of the producers of Connecticut’s very first paranormal convention, ParaConn, and he has announced that the fourth annual event will be returning to the state, but in a brand new location. On Saturday and Sunday, July 20-21 the paranormal season begins with this spooky spectacular at the Baldwin Center in Stratford. The haunted weekend event will feature special guests, seminars, panels, speakers, vendors, exhibits, a film festival, and much more. It is open to all ages and will feature a plethora of fun and ghost-filled activities for all ages, of interest to the most experienced of paranormal investigators as well as the most casual fan or student of the occult and all things haunted.

Rosenay is most excited about bringing the event to Stratford, a city which is near and dear to him. Charles was the creator, founder, and original owner of Fright Haven, the haunted attraction in Stratford. The perennial Halloween destination has brought thousands of visitors and commerce to Stratford over the years, and with attendees coming to the convention from all over the East Coast, he expects more of the same for Stratford. “What I really want,” says Rosenay, is for locals to come to ParaConn because they will have such a great time – and it’s in their hometown!”

ParaConn 4 is a spooky smorgasbord of paranormal guests, psychic readers, horror elements, and 50 vendors. For the first time ever, there will be a film festival, and an optional special paranormal investigation/ghost hunt to a most unusual historic and other-worldly location.

Connecticut’s ParaConn 4 takes place in the fully air-conditioned Baldwin Center, 1000 W. Broad Street, Stratford. Past shows have sold out. Parking is free. Food trucks/refreshments will be available. Advance tickets are on sale for only $19.99 from Admission is $25 at the door.
