WORLD CUP SPORTS, CONCERTS AND WINTER WONDERLANDS HAPPENING IN AND AROUND BARRIE THIS WEEKEND
Adios February. Granted, you played host to a plethora of sensational events in Barrie during your 28 day stay. But the fact that you relentlessly pelted us with snow and ice means we’re not terribly upset to see you go.
As the calendar clicks over to March on Friday, the city by the Lake welcomes the first month of Spring with a number of exciting indoor and outdoor attractions.
Keep in mind that you can find them all listed, as well as events coming in the days ahead on our events page.
WINTER WONDER WEEKEND AT FRIDAY HARBOUR
The luxury condo resort just south of Barrie on Big Bay road isn’t just a prime destination to live. It’s emerging as a prime destination for seasonal fun and family friendly activities.
This Saturday and Sunday you can indulge in all things winter for free. The resort is offering cross-country skis, fat bikes, snowshoes and skating equipment to the public for no charge.
Besides outdoorsy stuff, there will be a guided craft session for the wee ones, a family Olympic challenge and a campfire social in the evening to close out the day.
As with any free event, it’s likely to be busy. So be sure to get there early to secure a spot!
CONCERTS, CONCERTS, CONCERTS
Watch the Oscars last Sunday?
Maybe after seeing Rami Malek win best actor for his (incredible) portrayal of Freddie Mercury in Bohemian Rhapsody, you were inspired to see more gigs.
If so, Barrie’s live music venues have you covered.
On Friday, The Foxx offers two local artists on a three act ticket. Colourway, known for their smooth post rock sounds, will join fellow Barrie rockers Mount Mural as openers for the Toronto duo Outer Rooms. Then on Saturday, they’ve got another triple bill of hard alternative.
On Saturday, B Knox takes up his usual place at Painter’s Hall. Also on Saturday, Donaleigh’s has the Royal Pains.
WORLD CUP SQUASH
It isn’t often that world cup level sporting events come to Canada.
But this Sunday, you can take in a world class competition. Squash players from across the country will assemble at the Barrie Athletic Club to compete in 4 first round matches of the 100K 2019 Troilus Canada Cup Squash tournament.
This event will see 8 of the top players in the world compete for rights to move onto the second round. The top ranked player coming to Barrie is Cesar Salazar, World Ranking #31 from Mexico
