Each year when the days are shorter and the air grows cold, the
town of Ely comes together for one magical ice-loving event. Come celebrate winter the best way possible at the Fire and Ice Festival in Nevada! This three-day spectacular combines the arts, athletics, and partying set against some of Nevada’s most breathtaking mountain peaks. Bring on the hot chocolate and dress warm for the fun, wintery festival that is Ely’s Fire and Ice! Now in their nineteenth year, the Fire and Ice Festival in Ely, Nevada brings together the community and invites you, too, to experience the great and majestic outdoors.
The festival is held every third weekend in January, regardless of weather conditions. In 2023, the festival will be from January 14th to January 16th.
Ely is known for its glorious snow! When the white stuff starts to fall, that’s the time to get outside and play! Rather than succumbing to cabin fever, the folks of Ely have found the perfect medicine – embracing winter’s snow and ice. Are you familiar with the American Birkebeiner? Well, Ely has created its own version of the cross-country skiing competition. The Ely Birkebeiner invites athletes to compete in skiing and snowshoeing… And – most anticipated – fat bike racing through the snow! Who says you need to stay indoors when its cold out? Bundle up and enjoy January snow with family and friends.
There will be so many fun activities to take part in, like ice bowling, ice horseshoes, and even ice disc golf! Take a fun wintery spin on fun classics. If you prefer to warm up inside, there will be many games indoors, too.
And don’t forget one of the main events as local artists show off their ice sculpting skills!
Unlike the majority of festivities, the ice sculpting competition will be subject to weather.
Each year, artists wow guests of the Fire and Ice Festival with their incredible creations.
Want to try your hand at ice sculpting? Join in the fun and compete for cash prizes by contacting the convention center at (775) 289-3720.
With three days of snowy magical events, there will be just so much to do! From painting ceramics and a mural walking tour to hiking and many tournaments, you will find a jam-packed schedule awaiting you in January.
