Although this summer has been…unique (to say the least) we’ve been fortunate enough to have lots of socially distant events to round out the past month.
Live music returned, the libraries opened up. We even got pro sports back on TV.
And as the leaves change colour, and the nights get a little cooler, there are still plenty of summer themed experiences to be had.
Read on for 5 Things to check out in our last month of summer.
5 Things To Do in Barrie in September
Hit the Farmers Market
There is at least another month of outdoor marketing to enjoy. Packed with a wide range of fresh seasonal produce from local vendors, it’s the absolute best place to stock up on your weekend. Happening Saturdays from 8am – 12pm, right behind city hall in the parking lot.
Take In Live Music
The huge scale concerts might be in dry dock for the rest of the year, but there is are actual, honest to goodness gigs happening across town this month!
Donaleigh’s, the Queen’s, North Country BBQ, the Bull and Barrel and Common Good cafe have all rolled out solo artists and bands to accompany your food and drinks in recent weeks. Considering how fluid the pandemic lockdown regulations could be in the fall, getting out to see a show is a luxury you should not pass up. And you can find a full list of gigs in Barrie every week right here!
Play Online Bingo
Students at Georgian can get the full college experience this month…by competing in online Bingo! Seriously… it’s a thing.
Hosted by LadyVenom on Wed Sept 23 @ 7pm!
There’s a chance to win one of eight $25 Walmart digital gift cards. There are limited spots, so if you’re interested in dabbing digitally, sign up soon via this link https://linktr.ee/GCSA_barrie
If ever there was a year when finding inner peace was a priority…it’s this year.
Barrie Pride and Jampa Ling Buddist Centre are hosting a free guided introduction to meditation in the park. Happening September 19th at 10am.
