July 23-25, 2021
We are already planning our 2021 Blueberry/Art Festival. 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 40th running of the Blueberry/Art Festival. Each year the event draws 30,000 to 40,000 festival-goers across the three-day event. With modifications for health and safety, we anticipate that approximately 250 artists, crafters, and makers will participate in the 2021 event. Closer to the date, we will post our Covid-19 plan for both our vendors and festival-goers.
Friday, July 23 - 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Saturday, July 24 - 10 a.m. - 6 p.m.
Sunday, July 25 - 10 a.m. - 4 p.m.
Artists, Crafters & Makers
For those who registered for the 2020 Blueberry/Art Festival, we will be sending out 2021 registration forms in early January. Those returning vendors will have until March 1, 2021, to register and pay for their booth space for this year's festival.
For those who were not registered for the 2020 event, we have a jury application that can be submitted at any time. There is a non-refundable $25.00 jury application fee. On March 15, our judges will review all jury applications received to date and select applications to fill any remaining booth space. Those who are selected will be notified by email and need to submit booth payment within two weeks of notification. We do not allow BUY/SELL or SALES REPS in the festival. All products must be original and made by the individual submitting the application. We encourage all who are considering a jury application to review our Festival Policies below.
