Don't Miss The

The Everett Smithson Band played for the Boundary Waters Blues Fest party tent in 2011 and blew everyone away. The band plays an interesting variety of music as well as standards that have a unique spin on them and many delightful originals. Come to any Everett Smithson Band performance and you can count on the band to create a party atmosphere. New Orleans / French Quarter Music is what you will see and hear. Zydeco, Blues, Rockin' Roots, Hillbilly Hoedowns, gospel and more....... With the music being very infectious and the playful stage presence, the audience gets connected fast.
They will be playing the event tent after the expo or, possibly, another nearby venue for our after party.
It's not often we get a party band like this in Ely so make sure you don't miss the party!
Carol Nyholm and her Brittany Spaniel friend, will present
You and Your Hunting Dog.
This popular presentation will be taking place all three days of the event on the main stage. This presentation is a must see for all water foul and upland bird hunters.
Dog Obedience and Agility
With Paula McKenzie
will be discussed on the main stage and demonstrated throughout the weekend outside the tent with the full agility course being expertly navigated by her amazing yellow labs
Due to the likely and unforeseen extension of the 2012 fishing season, beginning the week prior to the original opener and coinciding with the Ely Outdoor Expo, we have had several requests from exhibitors to be released from their contracts with the Ely Outdoor Expo.

Out of respect to our exhibitors and presenters and the added pressure this would put on their businesses, we have elected to postpone this inaugural outdoor sports event until 2013.

Many of these same exhibitors have already given their support and commitment for the Expo in 2013

Thank you to everyone who has shown such enthusiastic support for this promising new event.

We apologies for any inconvenience this change may have caused.

See you in 2013,Good fishing!           -MJ
