about this event

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,” and an article ran on the front page of the Roswell Daily Record. The next day, however, the RAAF changed its statement to say that the object was a weather balloon. The statement sparked immediate controversy and has continued to be a topic of debate. MainStreet Roswell, Roswell Parks and Recreation, Roswell Museum and Art Center, the Roswell Runners Club, and Roswell Lodgers Tax invite UFO enthusiasts and skeptics alike to join in the celebration of this “debate,” of the Roswell Incident at the UFO Festival. Taking place each 4th of July weekend, events include guest speakers, authors, live entertainment, a costume contest, a pet costume contest, parade, car show and contest.
