UFO festival Cardwell 2021


Cardwell’s famous UFO Festival was back with a bang this year and had locals and visitors flocking to the foreshore for the extra-terrestrial activities. 

The festival stretched the whole weekend from Friday, August 6 to Sunday, August 7. 

Cardwell businesses decked out their town in all things alien and supernatural for the annual event, in celebration of Cardwell’s reputation for being a UFO sighting hotspot. 

Throughout Saturday, guest speakers hosted C-Files, shared experiences and research about aliens at the Cardwell Community Hall. On Saturday night, the foreshore was a buzz with live music, alien exhibits and costumes, food trucks, and beverages. On Sunday morning, the weekend was completed with a huge market selling all manner of goods on the beautiful foreshore greens, bringing crowds of people from all over to the small town. 

The Alien Festival is organized by Cardwell Community Events, and they are already planning the next event in 2022. 

If you attended the festival, head to the ‘Cardwell Community Events’ Facebook page and submit your feedback for a chance to win a $100 Visa card.
