The West Coast Haunter’s Convention: Tapping into the Mind of Ed Roberts

Posted 20 May 2012 in PODCASTS

Haunt ConventionIn Episode 13 of HaunTopic Radio, we mind travel to the West Coast and share a few moments with Ed Roberts; the man behind The West Coast Haunter’s Convention. It will be held in Portland, OR on June 1-3, 2012 at the Doubletree Hotel. This convention is open to all Halloween fans, Home Haunters, Haunt Owners, Vendors, Artists, and everyone else who loves the Dark & Scary. And it only costs $40 for the whole weekend.

We’re talking Haunt Tours, Make & Takes, Pretty Hearses to look at, Haunters like You to talk to, Over 40 Classes, Tradeshows, a Costume Ball, and many other possibilities. Ed is also helping The Oregon School for the Def by using money earned from the Convention to support to those who need it most. Watch the video below: The Extreme Makeover comes to help out the school & their Haunt.

All of this….all on the West Coast…and for charity?

Oh yeah…he is offering all Home Haunters a FREE TABLE at the convention.

    Awesome show just got around to listen to it 🙂 I saw the Home makeover episode with Ed and his haunt/school it was really cool. I need to go to a haunt convention soon so I can meet haunters 😛

      Thanks John! There is some great video out there about the makeover. Wish I had more space on my post…I could have ran it down the page.:-)

    You’re welcome and thank you for asking the question. I was very excited to hear your previous interview with Leonard Pickel and if you had not interviewed him already, he would have been my first choice.

    I’ll go outside the box and outside professional haunts and say I would really enjoy hearing from the Mitchells of “How to Haunt Your House” fame; I love their books and what they’re doing. How great would it be to get a prop building course from those two?

    The Davises of the Davis Graveyard would be fantastic as well.

    Hey Brian and Darryl,

    Thanks for interviewing Ed and spreading the word about the West Coast Haunters Con. It is one of the conventions that I knew least about. I had no clue it was associated with a school for the deaf and his haunt was the recipient of a haunted home makeover. I managed to find a link to that episode of Home Makeover and will be checking it out. It was wonderful to hear Ed willing to share his knowledge to bring a con to western Canada as well. Thanks for all your hard work.

      Thanks Rob! That’s one of the good things about doing interviews…all the cool things you learn along the way. Who is someone you would like to know about?
