Art Cars from Outer Space, Opening Ceremonies, and The Abduction Parade
The City of Roswell UFO Festival begins on July 2, 2021 with a trio of free events designed to kick off a weekend of family-friendly UFO fun! All the events will take place at DeBremond Stadium, right behind the Roswell Convention Center, and within steps from wristband and VIP pickup. Join us for three free events designed to get you and your extraterrestrials ready for a great weekend!
Art Cars from Outer Space 4pm to 6 pm
Get ready for selfies with some of the coolest cars and floats on this planet! This sneak peek of parade floats and cars allows normal humans a chance to get close to the vehicles and floats that make up the world-famous Abduction Parade. Bring the kids for the chance to see these vehicles and floats before the parade!
Are you one of the creative people that build out-of-this-world floats and cars? We’d love to have you as an entry in our Abduction Parade, or to exhibit your creation at the Art Cars from Outer Space viewing area! Download our float application here!
Opening Ceremonies 6 pm to 7:30 pm
It’s time to kick off the weekend! Join us for fun, vendors, food trucks, live entertainment, and a ribbon cutting ceremony to kick off the 2021 UFO Festival. You’ll get a chance to see the stage on the field at DeBremond that will be hosting daily events throughout the Festival. The Opening Ceremonies are the perfect opportunity to visit us at the courtyard of the Roswell Convention Center to pickup your VIP wristbands, buy official Roswell merchandise, and visit plenty of vendors – in addition to hanging out with your other UFO Festival attendees!
