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.
All weekend long we have tons of family friendly events throughout the day. From UFO experts and speakers, to pet costume contests and one of the largest Alien themed parades west of the Mississippi. Parade starts at 330pm and goes for about an hour or a little more, depending on how many entrants we have. We recommend arriving early, parking is limited.
