SPRUCE PINE ALIEN CONFERENCE & EXPO
The Spruce Pine Alien Conference & Expo started in 2019. That first year had over 7.500 people in attendance! Due to the pandemic, subsequent festivals were cancelled, until NOW — June 10, 2023!
Mitchell County, North Carolina is home to the most UFO sightings in all of NC. In addition, most if not all the quartz used in space telescopes, most any technology with a microchip and the tiles used on NASA space shuttles comes from the quartz found in the Spruce Pine mines.
There are reports of three different UFO crash sites that were investigated here in Mitchell County. The town is in close proximity to Mount Mitchell (the largest mountain east of the Mississippi) and the Brown Mountain Lights. With so many unexplained events around Spruce Pine it makes sense to have an alien festival in town.
We’ve partnered with local businesses and organizations to offer fun and learning for voyagers of all ages. Be sure to check out the Space Capsules (booths) at the Spruce Pine Alien Festival for more information or to secure tickets.
