2019 Winterfest Recap


2019 Ely Winterfest

Winterfest was started as a way to celebrate the Holidays with the Ely Businesses. Winter is often a time where people go into hibernation, but this event provides a family friendly opportunity for people to get out of the house for a day regardless of the weather and enjoy everything that our small town of Ely has to offer. This end of the year celebration is thrown by the Downtown Businesses. It is their way of giving back to the Community and saying ‘Thank You’ to all of those who patronize their stores throughout the year. The day may have been chilly, but it was filled with laughter and warm smiles. Winterfest kicked off with the annual 5k Fun Run, which is always a big Holiday hit! Hundreds of people enjoyed a day filled with horse drawn carriage rides, a busy vendor fair, cookie decorating, hot cocoa bar and last but not least, a visit from the Ice Princesses AND Santa!

Our local businesses would like to extend their sincerest appreciation to all those who came out to celebrate and would also like to thank the amazing volunteers! On behalf of the City and all of our residents, we would like to thank all of those who worked so hard to make this event so magical! Until next year, Happy Holidays!
