Autumn in Ely brings the Harvest Moon Festival, which takes place the first weekend after Labor Day in Whiteside Park. This three-day festival is filled with arts and crafts, food, live entertainment and activities to share with family and friends of all ages. Over 15,000 people join us to enjoy the beautiful fall weather and the fun and activities of this event.
Shop a delightful mix of original art and crafts from over 125 local and regional artists and craftsmen. Select from functional and decorative pottery, hand-turned wooden bowls, beadwork, paintings, leather and lots more! Youngsters can enjoy pony rides and a petting zoo. The All American Stunt Dog Challenge will entertain crowds all three days. Enjoy daily live music. Come for the arts and crafts, stay for the music, entertainment, food, and fall grandeur.
While visiting Ely, don't forget to stop in at our local retail stores. They are filled with a variety of unique clothing, giftware and food products - many carry Ely Made products. Our restaurants have the fall spirit too with delicious menu items, afternoon refreshments and more. We invite you to the small town at the end of the road for our Harvest Moon Festival - come for the day or stay for the weekend.
