We love being part of the Barrie and area community — there are just so many great people, places, and events here! We travel all over the region for our job, but it doesn’t feel like work when we get to see and meet so many wonderful folks.
Part of what makes this community enjoyable are all of the incredible events that go on. Hundreds of people dedicate their time to making sure these go off without a hitch. Not to mention they’re a lot of fun!
We’ve put together a list of some of the upcoming Barrie events and festivals happening in the area and beyond.
