Ely’s signature summer event, the Blueberry/Art Festival features more than 300 juried artists and crafters selling their hand-crafted items, 30 food vendors and local musicians. Held at Whiteside Park, the festival includes a blueberry pancake breakfast, a beer garden, live music each day, and activities for the kids, such as the bungie jump. Local stores and restaurants will offer specials and tasty concoctions with a blueberry theme, such as blueberry smoothies, tea, muffins, lemonade and scones. The food court will also have all kinds of tempting food, with everything from seafood to authentic Polish pierogis. The festival will take place from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Sunday.
