About Elmwood, WI

Elmwood is a beautiful rural community located along Pierce County’s northeastern border.With close proximity to I-94 and Menomonie, Elmwood offers the best of both rural living along with easy access to larger metropolitan areas.

The village of Elmwood hosts the annual “UFO Days” festival on the final weekend of July. The main areas where events are held are the downtown intersection of Elmwood (Main St & Winter Ave), the Elmwood Area School Athletic Fields, and the Elmwood Rod & Gun Club. Typical events include a Parade, Softball Tournament, Fun Run, Medallion Hunt, and live music. The full event list varies year to year.

The local interest in UFOs, according Howard Blum’s book, Out There: the government’s secret quest for extraterrestrials, (Simon & Schuster, 1990, NY, 300 pp.), comes because many, many unexplainable things have been seen over the years by what appear to be solid, level-headed locals. A secret UFO Working Group of government officials investigated the stories, choosing Elmwood because of the persistence of the sightings. Blum is a former NY Times journalist who learned the government was investigating potential security threats from extraterrestrials and wrote a book about it.
