Honoring the compelling 1950 UFO photographs taken by Evelyn and Paul Trent in McMinnville, the 21st annual UFOFest will bring flying-saucer enthusiasts, expert speakers and out-of-this-world fun to downtown McMinnville. Speaker events are ticketed, but admission to the costume contest, vendor fair and alien dance party is free.
WHEN: Friday and Saturday, September 24-25.
VENDOR FAIR: September 25, 10 am-6 pm.
WHERE: McMenamins Hotel Oregon, 310 NE Evans St., McMinnville.
SAFETY PROTOCOLS: Masks required for ages five and older, except when actively eating or drinking. Must provide proof of vaccination or a negative covid test at Community Center speaker events.
There will be no parade this year, but McMenamins encourages you to support local restaurants on the old parade route that have been hard hit by the pandemic .
