Mother’s Day is upon us.
And while you may be among the thousands ( ah, let’s be honest…among the millions) of guys scrambling all over town to find the perfect gift for that perfect woman, let us save you the trouble.
It’s wine. Get her wine. We asked…she wants wine.
And if that isn’t enough, there are plenty of brunches and outings to spoil her rotten. Read on to find out where and when!
Keep in mind that you can find all the events listed, as well as events coming in the days ahead on our events page.

And if you want to tie in some shopping, there’s also a lunch and bazzar sale happening at the Barrie Manor on Saturday.
But again…just be sure to include the wine.
BAYCATS SEASON OPENER
The boys of summer are back! And the best part is they don’t play on ice…so unlike the Colts and the Leafs, they won’t break your heart at it’s most vulnerable point! Uhh…sorry. Still processing all those hockey losses.
Barrie’s minor baseball team throws out the first pitch on Sunday, taking on the London Majors at 2pm. The ‘cats are coming off their fifth straight IBL championship season, and tickets are just $5.
Fun Fact! We post a full calendar of concerts every week in Barrie. And we are ALWAYS on the lookout for local artist performances. If you are playing anywhere in town, fire the deets to [email protected] We’ll be sure to post your gig!
Although it’s always busy on the live music circuit in Barrie, this weekend is particularly packed.
The Foxx Lounge welcomes a host of punk, metal and hard rock acts when the doors open on Friday. The big one this week is a group out of the UK called The Human Project, making their Barrie debut on Saturday. Fans of Brit based punk and bands like Bad Religion should get a charge out of these guys.
Elsewhere, Georgian Theatre hosts a 70s pop song love-in with Abbamania on Friday night. Mavrick’s has country star Granger Smith.
And The Kempenfelt Community Players take over Ferndale Banquet Hall for their production of The Wedding Singer.
MAKER’S EXPO @ BARRIE PUBLIC LIBRARY
Saturday marks a first for the library. The 1st annual Maker Expo happens at 10am, and if you have a few creatives in the family this is right up their alley.
The event includes maker demos, speakers, a robot marketplace and green screen studio time. Local vendors will be on hand as well!
BONUS UNCOVERED EVENT! BEACH VOLLEYBALL
Although Spring isn’t exactly blowing the doors off so far, warmer weather is bound to arrive soon…right?
