Ely Winter Festival 2023
February 2 – February 12
The Ely Winter Festival celebrates winter for 10 days in February. Activities include amazing snow sculpting in the park, an art walk through town, and playing outdoors in the pristine, uncrowded beauty that awaits you in Ely. Wander Whiteside Park as teams of professional sculptors turn 8-ft and 12-ft blocks of snow into works of art! Observe, ask questions, peek at their sketches and models. Keep warm by the fire. Every night, the light of dozens of ice candles renders Whiteside Park magical.
