It’s here… the Harvest Moon Festival is this weekend. This year’s festival features 100 booths filled with arts, crafts, and food. The festival runs from Friday, September 8 through Sunday, September 10.

“We have a great line-up of artists and crafters this year. Our featured artist is Larry Ricker of LHR Images. Returning artists include Good Wolf Bowls, Raucous Jewelry, Watercolors by Bonnie, and Pharr Thrown Pottery – just to name a few. We also have a great assortment of new artists including; Kristin Webster Art Studio, Finns Way Books, Christian’s Maple Syrup, and Burly Babe.

Of course, the Kiwanis are in the Pavilion with their delicious pies, ice cream, and beverages. Becky’s Oriental, SB Concessions, Bob-O-Que Smokehouse and Grill are just a few of the returning food court favorites, and joining them are several new food trucks; MeeMa’s Coffee, Frozen Tundra, Beyond Nuts, and Nacho Bizness,” said Kristen Switajewski, festival coordinator.

“Our fall festival is a favorite with smaller crowds, cooler temperatures, and our amazing group of artists, crafters, and food vendors. We hope everyone will stop by Whiteside Park and enjoy the festivities.”

Running in conjunction with the Harvest Moon Festival is Harvest Days featuring area businesses, highlighting their locally made products, product lines, special events, and more. Harvest Days start on Thursday, September 7 through Sunday, September 10. A map for Harvest Days will be available starting on Wednesday, September 6 at Ely.org or at the Ely Chamber of Commerce office.
