Ready to get to know the coolest (and hottest) winter fest in Nevada? Head for the annual Fire and Ice Winter Festival, hosted by one of the best mountain towns in eastern Nevada. A signature annual event that’s been part of the Ely story for years, the festivities are normally headquartered at Cave Lake State Park and also include the Nevada Northern Railway, Ward Mountain Recreation Area, and countless Downtown Ely businesses. From bowling to art sculpture bonfires, tournaments to live music, historic train rides and beyond, load up the whole fam for an outdoor weekend of winter wonderland activities you won’t be forgetting anytime soon.

Snow sculpting, an art sculpture bonfire, the only fireworks show we know of that launches explosives from a moving steam train, and plenty more activities make Ely’s Fire & Ice Winter Festival the hottest (and coolest) place to be.

During the daytime, watch snow sculptures come to life (weather cooperating) at Broadbent Park, tour the White Pine Public Museum, or take in all the murals in downtown Ely. Test your skills in darts, disc golf, horseshoe, and cornhole tournaments, or paint ceramics at Desert Rose Ceramics. Once the sun sets, you can partake in a pub crawl, rock out at a concert, or hop aboard the Fireworks Express at the historic Nevada Northern Railway and East Ely Depot Railroad Museum—an experience you and the whole family are sure to remember forever. After all, when else will you be able to experience fireworks blasting off a historic, early-1900s-era locomotive? Be sure to get your hands on tickets in advance, as this one always sells out! The art sculpture bonfire is the icing on the festival cake, evoking the feel of Burning Man’s closing ceremony.

No matter how you decide to experience this top annual Nevada event, it’s safe to say Ely has something going on all over town, all day long.
