Harvest Moon Festival

September 9-11, 2022

We are already planning our 2022 Harvest MoonFestival.  While things are looking different these days, the Ely Chamber of Commerce is working hard to create a safe and enjoyable art & craft festival.  This year marks the 28th running of the Harvest Moon Festival.  Each year the event draws 10,000 to 15,000 festival-goers across the three-day event.  With modifications for health and safety, we anticipate that approximately 140 artists, crafters, and makers will participate in the 2022 event.  

Festival Dates/Hours

Friday, September 9 - 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Saturday, September 10 - 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Sunday, September 11 - 10 a.m. - 3 p.m.

While you are enjoying the festival, we invite you to also visit local businesses for our Harvest Days event running from Thursday, September 8 through Sunday, September 11.  Businesses are offering special offers, discounts, and fall activities.
