Ya know what makes life livable?


Also bacon.

Oh, and Poutine. And wine…whisky. Simpsons reruns. Wine. Anything written by Neil Gaiman. Wine.  Preferably all at once!

And things that are FREE.

With all of that in mind, we present the Freebie: A weekly guide to events in Barrie that require zero money.


BAC 2019 Art Crawl

The Barrie Arts Committee in partnership with Culture Days will be showcasing the work of 10 local artists ranging from visual, literary and performance. Doors open at 7 pm and will take place in and around a variety of local businesses along Barrie’s Lakeshore Mews. Make sure to pick up an event passport on Saturday 28th to learn about the featured artists and more.



It’s the last Saturday for Free Yoga from the top of Horseshoe Valley.
