All Things Alien Related

For those who have never been, the 3-day party celebrates all things alien-related and features numerous events including concerts, planetarium laser shows, retro sci-fi movies, a drone show, and guest speakers at the Roswell UFO Museum.

The annual space alien jubilee commemorates the summer of 1947 when a rancher discovered debris from an unidentified flying object on a ranch miles outside of Roswell.

This year’s world-famous festival will salute the 75th anniversary of the legendary crash, now known as The Roswell Incident.

Depending on whose account you believe, it was either a “flying saucer” that crash landed or a weather balloon, and the bodies allegedly recovered were either extraterrestrial in nature or crash test dummies.

People and Pets in Far Out Costumes

Scrolling through the festival Facebook and website reveals there is so much to do at the UFO Festival.

There's the Alien Crawl, which is a party bus that stops at a few of Roswell’s finest restaurants, where you can sample alien-themed beverages and appetizers. A parade with alien-themed floats and storm-troopers from a galaxy far, far away, and the crowd favorite pet costume contest to name just a few.
