September 24 & 25, 2021

Masks must be worn at all times by anyone age 5 or older, except while actively eating or drinking. Attendees at Community Center speaker events must show proof of COVID vaccination or negative test.

UFO Fest, where skeptics and believers come together! Two days of fun for the whole family with fascinating (sometimes terrifying!) speaker presentations, cosmic costume contest, live music, vendor booths, Alien Costume Ball and more. There’s something intriguing for everyone!

This year’s speaker lineup includes a professor, a podcaster, a former skeptic and more – all UFO experts and experiencers. See the full lineup, read about these fascinating speakers, and get tickets here.


The Vendor Fair will run 10am-6pm on Saturday, September 25. Our partner, McMinnville Downtown Association, handles vendor tents. Vendors can apply here.

What about the UFO Parade?

The Parade will return in 2022, but this September, hard-hit McMinnville businesses could use your support! Dine Out(side) at local restaurants and check out the local shops and tasting rooms. When the parade is in motion, many of these businesses lose their outdoor seating, so this year, instead of parading by, we’ll march right in for a drink, a meal, an ice cream and more.
