McMenamins UFO FEST

The World’s 2nd Largest (but most fun) UFO Festival

May 17-18, 2024

Parade starts at 12:00pm on Saturday!

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.

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.
