The UFO Fest is one of a number of sites continues our long relationship with McMenamins.
The festival began as a way to honor the famous 1950 Trent sighting in which two local citizens witnessed and photographed a UFO, said to be some of the most credible images of UFOs to date.
Undeniable Proof? Debate Rages on Over McMinnville UFO Photos
Isn’t it funny how life can change radically in just a few moments? Something that initially seems innocent and banal can spiral out of control, rapidly take on a life of its own and have major impact on a national and even international level. This very sort of thing happened in a big way here locally to a humble rural family outside of McMinnville, Oregon, just over 50 years ago. A simple chore that usually seemed uneventful became, in just a few chaotic seconds, a life-transforming experience, and a pair of snapshots would vault onto the world scene, forever altering the debate surrounding the search for extraterrestrial life and UFOs.
