Welcome to the official site for the Roswell, New Mexico UFO Festival!
The dates have been confirmed for July 3-6, 2014. We are planning tons of great activities for the family. Whether you are a serious UFOlogist, or just would like to check out the most unique festival in the world, we have something for you!
Please check back soon as well will be posting activities, entertainment, vendor information and more! In the meantime, check out the photos from 2013.
The City of Roswell invites UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike to join in the celebration of one of the most debated incidents in history. The three-day event will feature guest speakers, authors, live entertainment, a costume contest, a pet costume contest, parade, family-friendly activities and more.
If you are a visitor to Roswell, there are plenty of lodging options available. There are many hotels within a two mile radius of the event. Roswell also has public bus transportation with Pecos Trails Transit. The majority of the events will be held downtown, with very few exceptions. Most events are within walking distance.
In early July, 1947, a mysterious object crashed on a ranch 30 miles north of Roswell. The Roswell Army Air Field (RAAF) issued a statement claiming to have recovered a crashed “flying disk.” An article ran on the front page of the Roswell Daily Record and the next day, RAAF changed its statement to say that the object was a weather balloon, not a flying disk as they previously reported. This revised statement sparked immediate controversy and has continued to be a topic of debate more than 60 years later. This is best known as the UFO Incident.
