McMenamins UFO Fest 2021

at Hotel Oregon in McMinnville, OR

September 23–25, 2021

Since we’ve been living the plot of a sci-fi movie for over year, we are ready for UFO Fest 2021! But we’re going to wait a little longer: the festival scheduled for May 13-15, 2021 has been rescheduled to September 23-25, 2021.

Vendors: Stay Tuned!
We are busy with covid-safe UFO Festival plans and do not have vendor information at this time. We will update our website with vendor opportunities in the coming months, so please check back.

The Parade Must Go On
Yes, there will be a UFO parade this year, but entry forms are not yet available while plans are still being made. When the festival lineup is finalized this summer, entry forms will be available through McMinnville Downtown Association.

Every year, thousands of visitors flock to McMinnville, a quiet Willamette Valley town located an hour southwest of Portland, to attend the famous three-day McMenamins UFO Festival. Second in popularity only to the UFO festival in Roswell, New Mexico, Oregon’s annual celebration features a UFO parade, expert speakers, live (free!) music indoors and out, a 5K run, a pet costume contest, events with the featured speakers, a ‘landing party’ with vendor booths and more.

Founded in 1999, this UFO Festival began at the historic McMenamins Hotel Oregon property as a way to honor the famous 1950 Trent sighting in the area, and has evolved into an epic celebration of all things extraterrestrial.
