Elmwood, Wisconsin: UFO Capital of Wisconsin

There was once talk of building a "UFO Landing Strip" in Elmwood as an attraction -- the sightings were that numerous. A single little saucer still stands next to Sailer's Meat Market.

Roughly midway between Minneapolis and Eau Claire, and around ten miles south of I-94 exit 28. Sailer's Meats has a small UFO standing to the right of its building.

UFO Capital of Wisconsin

There is only one UFO remaining in a corner of the Sailer's Meats building that you would not even know what it was if you weren't there with the purpose of finding it.

[Kevin, 11/23/2023]

The former display of multiple UFOs always looked temporary, but one flying saucer is still better than none.


Aliens at the UFO Capital

At Sailer's Meats on the west edge of town, there is a cluster of UFOs in the parking lot. Each one is maybe 4-5 feet high and 4-5 feet wide, with some aliens lingering nearby. Apparently related to Elmwood's status as the UFO sighting capital of the state, the UFO's are well-constructed, the aliens are funny-looking.

UFO Capital of Wisconsin

Humans and aliens alike may stop at UFO Days, July 28-30, 2001, in Elmwood. The town is the home of several reported UFO sightings since the 1970s and embraces its otherworldly connection with numerous events, including a parade with "extraterrestrial" guests.
