Gatherings

Sporting events, reunions, weddings, business meetings and corporate retreats; if you find yourself planning a large gathering, think outside the box. Emphasis on the outside! Year-round, the North Woods makes a gorgeous back drop for inspiring and memorable moments. 

Ely has the Venues, Lodging, Dining, amenities, and entertainment to exceed your expectations, but to form a truly unique experience, consider adding in daily excursions, a cocktail hour at a local restaurant or group classes at the Ely Folk School. Not to mention, you can rent the Marquee of Ely’s Historic State Theater to welcome your guests as the drive into town!

Create an experience that celebrates your special event and immerses participants in the essence of this bold, rugged place of land and lakes. Our corner of Minnesota rests within thousands of acres of national forest and borders one million acres of wilderness.  Ely has more than enough room to accommodate groups of all sizes and looks forward to hosting yours next!
