For the last 30 years, the Victory of Light Expo has been amongst — if not the largest — metaphysical events in the Midwest.

“When I produced my first Victory of Light Expo in 1992, I could never have imagined that the expo would become so large,” said Victor Paruta. Paruta started his expo after an encounter with another psychic who entered his book store.

At the time, he was focusing on what he should do — both in this world and the next. “You should start a psychic fair,” this intuitive stranger said. So, Paruta took heed focused on what would soon come.

The expo first began as a small psychic fair in the ballroom of a nearby hotel. But, eventually, the Victory of Light Expo grew to become the Greater Cincinnati Area’s 13th largest convention, based on annual attendance and one of the largest body, mind and spirit events in the entire country.

Paruta believes one of the reasons this event has been successful is because “People don’t get this ‘stuff’ in their daily lives. It helps them reconnect with their spirituality. We’re all spiritual people, and we need a connection to something greater than ourselves. Developing that connection and learning how to do that helps us deal with life more effectively. It’s just an all-around powerful experience.”

Paruta announced the acquisition of Cincinnati’s beloved Victory of Light Expo (VOL) just four months before the next event. The expo was purchased by the Body Mind Spirit Expos (BMSE) of Ashland, Oregon, which is set to continue the Victory of Light Expo from here on out. Psychics will continue to be credentialed and vetted by the experts.

The next event will occur on November 20 and 21, 2021, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Sharonville Convention Center. Shoppers will be able to buy crystals, jewelry, art, imported clothing and aura photography on-site.

There will also be two days of workshops and seminars on topics, such as:

  • Astrology
  • Past lives
  • Angels
  • Dream interpretation
  • Meditation
  • Developing intuition
