Burien UFO Festival
August 24 @ 5:00 pm - 10:00 pm
We are excited to announce that the Burien UFO Festival will take place on the third Saturday in August beginning in 2019! Discover Burien welcomes the community to a spirited night full of fun festivities of the otherworldly kind! Join us for a “landing party” unlike any other! This is a FREE all-ages event!
The Burien UFO Festival (BUFO) is entering a new phase. John White and Shelli Park are no longer able to continue producing the event and are pleased to announce that they have decided to hand BUFO over to Discover Burien so that it may continue to bring the UFO enthusiast community together to celebrate the otherworldly in Olde Burien.
BUFO was started in 2014 to celebrate the local premiere of “The Maury Island Incident,” and has since grown to a full block party that draws thousands to Olde Burien with live music, art, occasional film festivals, and much more.
Please save the date and join us on Saturday, August 24, 2019 in Olde Burien from 5-10 p.m.
