The Town of Fairlee, Vermont, which includes the Village of Ely, is located in the "Woodstock-Quechee" region of the state, between the Connecticut River and the foothills of the Green Mountains.
Fairlee has two scenic lakes, Lake Morey and Lake Fairlee, both with long and proud histories. Lake Morey claims to have the longest ice skating trail in the United States. Lake Morey Resort provides a beautiful natural setting that is fun and welcoming to people of all ages. Fairlee is a vibrant resort community in the summer, home to generations of summer residents and children attending summer camp. In the fall, after the foliage has gone, the pace slows and the town becomes a quiet, scenic New England village.
Every Tuesday evening from July 3 to August 28, FCA presents free concerts on the Common featuring some of the area's most popular bands in a variety of musical genres.
