Events that Promote our Community’s Heritage
& Unique Culture

Ely is a special place. Explored by French voyageurs, settled by loggers and miners largely from Finland and Slovenia, and visited by thousands of wilderness enthusiasts each year, Ely has a rich history to uncover.  The Ely Folk School hosts events such as Contra Dances, musical concerts, and more!
