BUFO was started in 2014 to celebrate the local premiere of “The Maury Island Incident,” and has since grown to a full block party that draws thousands to Olde Burien with live music, art, occasional film festivals, and much more.

Activities and scenes from past BUFOs include: 

    • SCREENING OF LOCALLY-PRODUCED ‘THE MAURY ISLAND INCIDENT’ FILM
      BUFO was first created by John White and Shelli Park as a way to commemorate the release of the locally-produced, award-winning, historic UFO short film “The Maury Island Incident,” which shot some scenes at the Tin Room. The film was executive produced by White, written and produced by Steve Edmiston, directed and produced by Scott Schaefer, and produced by Laura Beth and Scott Peterson, along with Danny House (who has a cameo in the Tin Room scene).
    • FIND BERNARD OF BURIEN IN OLDE BURIEN!
      Visit the orange Discover Burien tent for Bernard’s location throughout Burien! Find him in the nearby shops and bring back your completed form to be entered to win a fun surprise. All ages may participate as this is just as fun for the adults as it is for the kids.
    • COSTUME CONTEST!
      Wear your costumes! It’s more fun that way! Okay, it’s not a requirement, but you might want to have a little fun on this silly shenanigan kind of night.
    • METAPHYSICAL FAIR!
      We’re getting all kinds of otherworldly with a new Metaphysical Fair happening right in the center of the universe – BUFO.
