2014 was an extremely successful festival and we are looking forward to 2015! Thank you everyone who joined us. We had people from all over the world attend! The verdict is in: everyone had a wonderful time and cannot wait to return! This year the Festival will be held July 3-5, 2015 – start making plans to attend now! We are currently in the process of booking all the entertainment and events, so check back often.
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.

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.
