UFO Festival

The Edinburg UFO Festival has been canceled due to COVID 19. The anticipated festival was originally scheduled for the first weekend of April and later postponed to the second weekend of August due to travel concerns for the UFO Presenters. The UFO Festival is now being canceled for 2020 and rescheduled at its regular annual time in April, on April 8th - 10th 2021. All tickets previously purchased online or at the Sekula Memorial Library will remain valid; those who wish a refund can do so by requesting a refund to arts@cityofedinburg.com.

The 2021 UFO Celebrities are: Christopher O’Brien, Ancient Aliens; Richard Dolan, Ancient Aliens; Tracey Garbutt, UFO Experiencer; Ben Hansen, former FBI and SciFi TV Host; and Noe Torres, author of Early American UFOs. The Annual Edinburg UFO Festival is 3rd ranked in the United States and 3rd in the world. This three-day Festival will include conferences by Celebrity UFO speakers from shows like Ancient Aliens and Fact or Faked; a Festival full of activities like a planetarium, tin foil hat station, vendors, Autopsy Room, and much more; costume contests, and a 3D mapping experience, and an "Out of this World" music-lights-sound show. The UFO Festival will also include footage of UFO sightings in the Rio Grande Valley.

The Festival was inspired by an Incident in 1966 in north Edinburg, where nine witnesses saw a flying object strike their vehicle. The Festival will kick off with the open mic at the iconic Edinburg Municipal Auditorium on Thursday, April 8th, at 7:00 p.m. Those interested in sharing their accounts of personal encounters or footage are highly encouraged to contact us via phone at 956-383-6246 or via email at arts@cityofedinburg.com.

The fun filled family friendly festival will take place at the City of Edinburg's City Hall Courtyard on Friday, April 9th starting at 6:00 PM, where music, food, shopping and entertainment of lights and sound will teleport you "Out of This World". The Festival is free and open to the entire Rio Grande Valley on April 8th and 9th.
