The Roswell Galacticon & the Roswell SciFi Film Fest is The Premier Family Event for Roswell, NM with the Roswell UFO Festival hosted every year over the Independence Day weekend.
The event has a dual nature comprising the Roswell SciFi Film Fest and the Roswell Galacticon.

The Roswell Galacticon side is similar to a “Comic Con” featuring a vendor hall with a wide variety of goods for sale, workshops and panels, role playing games, celebrity guests, and much more. Additional activities include Cosplay Karaoke night, a Zombie Invasion Role Playing Game open to all, Costume and Cosplay Contests, and the annual Steampunk Ball.
