McMenamins 15th Annual UFO Festival

at Hotel Oregon in McMinnville

Thursday thru Sunday, May 15–18, 2014

To mark our 15th Annual UFO Festival, we’ve brought in a truly extraordinary line-up of guests – from an internationally known talk-show host to an expert in the Sasquatch/extraterrestrial phenomena and beyond…

To accommodate this broader schedule, the festival has been extended to four days! This year, we’ve planned events from Thursday through Sunday, May 15–18, with expert presentations, lunch with speakers, a UFO costume parade, multiple live bands and much more.

Speakers’ Lineup Announced!

Our 2014 Speakers include:

George Noory – Host of the nationally syndicated radio program “Coast to Coast AM.”
Stanton T. Friedman – Nuclear physicist, author and award-winning UFO/ufology lecturer since the mid-1960s.
David Marler – Author/expert on triangular UFO phenomenon and an independent UFO researcher.
James Clarkson – Washington State Director of MUFON and author; retired police sergeant, child abuse detective and state investigator.
Kewaunee Lapseritis – Authority on sasquatch phenomenon, particularly as it relates to extraterrestrial activity.
Peter Davenport – Director of the National UFO Reporting Center since 1994.

In addition to ticketed events, the weekend includes a number of free, family-friendly attractions, including live music, a costume parade, contests and a movie.

Remember to visit the all-day vendor booths, presented by our friends at the McMinnville Downtown Association.

The festival began as a way to honor the famous 1950 Trent sighting in which two local McMinnville citizens witnessed and photographed a UFO, said to be some of the most credible images of UFOs to date.
