We are getting excited for some changes at the 2020 UFO Festival.  Plan to spend your July 4 holiday in Roswell, New Mexico for some great family entertainment and fun!

Be sure to join over 39,000 subscribers at the bottom of the page for updates!

We have only begun, so much of the information you see now will be from 2019.  We are working on 2020, so be sure to check back periodically.

This year the Festival will be held July 3-5, 2020 – make plans to attend now!  Many hotels are already filling up with reservations, so we recommend making reservations immediately!

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, parade, a pet costume contest, parade, family-friendly activities and more.

The majority of big events are free.
These include the Pet and Human Costume Contests, Light Parade and so much more.  No charge for alien hat making and crafts.  Some of the vendors, the UFO Museum and the Roswell Planetarium charge nominal fees.

This year the event is being held at the Roswell Convention and Civic Center – a few blocks from downtown but within walking distance to the UFO Museum.


Thank you to our major sponsor
