6 Things To Do This August in Barrie

SUMMER’S NEXT MONTH IS PACKED WITH INTERESTING EVENTS ALL OVER TOWN

August arrives with plenty of socially distant and virtual events and happenings in tow. Thanks to the gradual re-opening of the region due to curve flattening, there are far more things to do this month than last. Here are a few to check out in the coming weeks…

6 Things To Do This August in Barrie

90s Throwback Virtual Show by Army of Sass Barrie

The days of the Fresh Prince, Snapple and overalls with the snaps down are back! Well, at least in dance form.

Army of Sass is putting together a classic in studio jam featuring the likes of Backstreet Boysand Spice Girls, Def Leppard Red Hot Chili Peppers, and loads more.

This is a live stream performance, tickets to be purchased in advance to get a link to the show. Happening this Thursday.


BOOTS AND HEARTS LIVE STREAM

Although the full festival is on hold, the Boots and Hearts team will be going live stream with performances for the weekend. Lineup includes Dan + Shay, Morgan Evans, and King Calaway and more.

HIT THE VIRTUAL CINEMA

The Barrie Film Festival has been up and running right through the pandemic, with loads of online offerings to satisfy your cinematic cravings. Their virtual cinema program projects indy movie selections every week for rental via their website. All you need is the screen and the popcorn!

HIT THE OUTDOOR CINEMA

If the kids are getting bored of Disney +, Sunset Drive In is open for wider screen experiences. New movies every week, including a wicked blend of classics and newer releases to accommodate most generations.

TAKE IN SOME LIVE MUSIC

Yes, you read that correctly. There are live performances happening once again across Barrie! Venues are limited to a single artist with social distance restrictions in effect. The Common Good cafe and Sonder Studio have both had mini concerts already with more to come!

BECOME A PODCAST JUNKY

One advantage to being home more is the ability to take up new habits and learning. If you are on the prowl for something new to activate your interest nodes, consider diving into the podcast universe.

Uncovered produces several Barrie based pods, including the (usually) hilarious stylings of local comedians Fraser Moore and Scott Walker in Cinema Smack Down.

Cinema Smackdown Episode 8 – MVP

Cinema Smack Down

n our latest quarantine edition, the guys find new and unusual ways to torture themselves by reviewing the 1997 disaster Most Valuable Primate… ya know, about the monkey that plays hockey?

Along the way, they shout out to local breweries as well as almost every region of western Canada, and construct a bizarre fan theory that Jesse from Breaking Bad was in this movie.

As per usual, there are several swears for the easily offended.

The Covid Collection – Photographer Laura Bainborough

In the latest Uncovered podcast, we chatted with Barrie photographer Laura Bainborough about her imaginative, pop culture inspired Covid photo collection.
