It's blueberry time in the northwoods

We spotted nice size blueberries this week that were ready for picking. Just in time for Ely's Blueberry Festival next weekend; July 26-28.  Are you coming to Ely for the Festival in Whiteside Park?  Plan to spend some extra time exploring all the craft-filled tents, great food and of course indulge in a piece of blueberry pie.
Wild blueberries

But don't stop there! Come over to Spirit of the Wilderness Outfitters and Outdoor Store for great sales on Columbia sportswear and footwear, TEVA sandels, camping gear, water tubes and more.We are open 6 am - 9 pm daily. Located at 2030 E. Sheridan St, Ely MN.  Check us out at

Annual concert on the deck
Mark your calendars for August 3. We will have our annual concert on the deck. This year "BLT" will be providing music from 6:30 pm - 9:00 pm.  Bring your lawn chair for a evening of fine music. Rain or shine

"BLT" is a folk trio made up of Twin Cities musicians Karl Burke, Rich Lindell and Roady Tate. The group performs contemporary and traditional folks songs along with Celtic, oldies ad pop tunes.  The unique blend of voices, guitars and musical styles will keep you coming back again and again.

See you in Ely soon for canoeing, special sales, the Blueberry Festival, concert on our deck or perhaps all of it.
