Of course! This family event is open to everyone.
Camp du Nord is about 25 minutes from Ely, Minnesota. We’ll have signs pointing the way from Ely, but just in case, here are directions:
Parking is limited at Camp du Nord, so please consider carpooling if you are able.
One hour before each concert.
The shows on Saturday and Sunday will be in a large field where no chairs are provided. Please bring a blanket or lawn chairs for your family to sit on, or stand and dance your heart out through the whole show.
There will be some seating at the smaller stage for the Roe Family Singers on Friday night where you can sit or stand throughout that show.
In the event of inclement weather, the show will be interrupted and resume when weather permits, or will be moved indoors. Tickets are sold on a rain or shine basis; no refunds will be given for delay or cancelations due to bad weather.
Check out our Lineup and Musicians page for more info.

You are welcome to bring snacks for the family and we recommend bringing a water bottle for the event that you can refill at camp. There will be Bent Paddle Beer to purchase at the event if you are 21 or older, but outside alcohol is prohibited. Please keep in mind that this is a family event, and modeling responsible behavior around alcohol is expected at all times. Please do not bring glass bottles.
You bet! Ely favorite Wilderness Wood Fire will be selling pizza and other wood-fired delights. And Street Tacos and Eats will be firing up their taco truck for hungry concert-goers. In addition, folks from the Camp du Nord Trading Post will be selling a few snacks and drinks. We will have water available for no charge.
Weapons, alcohol, tobacco, e-cigarettes, and drugs are prohibited at Camp du Nord. While we do love pets, they are NOT allowed at Fest du Nord. Thank you for understanding!
