ARIEL, the not-for-profit Arts and Culture Roundtable in Elliot Lake, is presenting two weather-proof events during Winterfest 2024, said its chairperson Prisca Campbell.

The first is a cabaret-style evening running from 6:30 p.m. to approximately 10:30 p.m. on February 9 at Collins Hall.

The Friday evening concert is a fundraiser for ARIEL and will feature a silent auction where attendees can bid on one-of-a-kind finds. The auction pieces range from a summer of mooring at the local boat launch, a unique 1,014 piece puzzle featuring a painting by well-known Elliot Lake artist Linda Finn along with many other items. Included in the price of admission is a charcuterie-style buffet and there will be a cash bar.

The first hour of the event provides an opportunity to socialize and look over the silent auction items. The concert begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 per person and are available online at or at Alpine Flowers in the Paris Plaza (cash only).

ARIEL's second event is a children’s concert that will begin at 11 a.m. on February 10, also at Collins Hall. The show is best appreciated by children under 12. All children must be accompanied by an adult. Tickets – $5 for children under 12 and $10 for adults – are also available online or at Alpine Flowers in the Paris Plaza (cash only). 

Liam Kearney – a former resident of Elliot Lake who has made a name for himself as a children’s performer and as a singer-songwriter for adults – will perform at both events.

Both concerts are possible through the sponsorship of Elliot Lake Retirement Living and the City of Elliot Lake.

“ARIEL thanks them for their support,” Campbell said.

Since 2008, ARIEL has supported the Arts Community of Elliot Lake. Currently, ARIEL is working with the city to install an art gallery at 14 Elizabeth Walk. All funds raised from the events will support a wide spectrum of arts in Elliot Lake visual, crafts, music, dance, theatre, film, and writing.
