Can we talk about November? Nestled between the holiday-filled October and December, it often seems a little dreary and lacklustre in comparison. But we’re here for November and want to convince you that November is actually pretty rad. Here’s what’s on tap this November in Barrie. 



Dan Mangan @ Mavericks 

Haven’t heard of Dan Mangan? This award-winning Canadian musician brings his indie folk rock musings to Mavericks on November 29th. Don’t miss Dan as he sings about birth, rebirth, fear and everything in between. 



Remembrance Day Parade & Ceremony @ Meridan Place 

Commemorating all those who made the ultimate sacrifice, the Remembrance Day Parade & Ceremony will take place in Barrie on Monday, Nov 11 at 10:30. Watch the parade as it moves through the downtown, then join the community for a ceremony, laying of wreaths and moment of silence at Memorial Square. 


Art For Lunch @ MacLaren Art Centre 

Skip the tuna sandwich at your desk and try some art for lunch this November. Happening November 8 from 12:15 pm – 1:00 pm, this free event allows participants to explore an art-related concept and mingle with other art enthusiasts. This month’s topic will be of particular interest to practicing and emerging artists as it focuses on the history, structure and ongoing work of CARFAC National. 



Black Friday Sale @ Redline 

What’s better than a cold, locally brewed brewski? A cold, locally brewed brewski that is ON SALE. That’s right, friends – Redline Brewery is getting in on the Back Friday game with an epic sale! It’s happening Nov 29th, involves huge deals on beer and merchandise, and includes samplings of beer and snacks. 



Flow Yoga @ Sonder 

There’s a new place to get your savasana on in Barrie. Get your asana to Sonder Studio, located in Barrie’s east end. Their Flow Yoga class is happening Nov 5, Nov 12 and Nov 14 at 7am and focuses on breath synchronization and maintaining a comfortable, gentle pace. 




Xmas Pub Crawl 

If you liver can stand it, you can traverse a dozen night spots through Barrie while celebrating the Christmas season. (Throwing up counts as celebrating) If you are brave enough, there’s actually two nights for this banger. Good luck!



Murder Mystery Dinner and Dance

Take a step back in time to the 70s, where disco was king and only the most elite of the elite got on the list for entry to the club!

The club itself is run by Louis Savage. But when Louis is found murdered in his office, celebrities and other people from all walks of life are suddenly suspects in his murder!

A SHOT murder mystery investigation is very different from a traditional mystery “game”. It’s a true investigation-style mystery where you will be introduced to our suspects, and then it’s up to you to question them, as a detective would one-on-one to find the suspect who had the motive, means and opportunity to commit the murder!
