All The Good (And Occasional) Bad of What Went Down in Barrie Last Week

There are three certainties in life…



Social media.

And if you are tweeting, posting and talking about Barrie on social media, we want to hear from you! Every week we will do a quick recap of the week that was in Barrie based on your pics, posts and videos.

Whether it’s concerts, store openings, foodie reviews, feelgood stories, fun facts about Barrie, even bizarre bird formations over the marina, we want to share it.

Here’s what went down in Barrie last week…


Ah October. We love you for your colours. Your soups. Hockey. And apples! As @yezarni discovered at @barriehillfarms whilst touring the local orchard.

Who else is excited about the Joker movie hitting theatres next week? Barrie’s @travisgoestothemovies is. And if this is a sequel…just take all our money now.


Were you lucky enough to be in the audience when America’s Got Talent Greg Morton rolled into town this week? You’re probably still sore from laughter. We were lucky enough to sneak inside.

It’s been a tough go for some of the businesses downtown as construction tears up Dunlop street. Luckily the great storefronts are putting a positive spin on things. Like @ripejuicery

And finally, if you read this space often, you know how excited we are about the emerging and established musical talent Barrie has to offer. And the scene is being amplified by some fantastic local studios, including @mix11studios.
