The Kecksburg UFO Festival for 2020 has been canceled due to the Coronavirus. As you know we had 3-5,000 customers and vendors show up to our festival last year from all over our borders. In respect for all with this unknown future we made the decision to move the festival into next year. I want to thank all for their support because without them we could not do what we do in Kecksburg. We are in different times now and want to keep everyone safe. I also want to thank all our people who come to help each and every year. We are rescheduling the Kecksburg VFD UFO festival for, July 23,24,25, 2021. We look forward to seeing you all there and be safe. Please forward this on to family and friends!
Any questions, call 724-423-9540, or 724-423-2580 or email,
Thanks Again!
