The 27th annual Ely Winter Festival in northern Minnesota takes place during the first two weeks of February. The festival hosts a world class Snow Sculpting Symposium that draws artists from across the USA, Canada, Mexico and beyond.
At the Ely Winter Fesival there are always many events for the artistically inclined, the musically inclined, those who love the outdoors and those who love to eat! There’s always something for the whole family!
Over the years, activities such as a crafts fair, musical concerts, Sled Dog Rides, and several food events have become part of the festivities! There is something for everybody at the Ely Winter Festival!
