Stuff to Do? Check and check…


Mother Nature apparently didn’t like the idea of showing Ghostbusters last week when it was originally scheduled (Supernatural reasons we mere mortals aren’t privy to obviously) but it’s a go for this Saturday at Centennial. All you need is a lawn chair and some twinkies, with the film starting at dusk.


Show your love for Simcoe County’s farmers and food producers on Local Food Day at the Barrie Farmers’ Market.

Shop with as many vendors as possible to earn ballots for the Market Money draw. Top prize is $200 to spend at the market and second and third get $50 each!

Urban Pantry Barrie will be on hand to do some cooking demos and you can find out about community gardens throughout the city.



And on Saturday, The Five Points Theatre is hosting the Movie Premiere of, “Modern Cinderella” a Musical featuring Infinity Performing Arts students between the ages of 10 – 14 yrs old. It’s a RED CARPET Event with tickets online or at the box office.

Self Improvement, Outdoor Activities, and Much More For You To Enjoy This Month

As we’ve mused recently, it seems as though 2019 is whipping by at Warp 9. So it is absolutely vital that we all get out and start enjoying the warm weather! Because before you know it…this happens…

Look, we’re sorry to have done that. But now you feel far more motivated to jump off the couch, right?? So get thee out of the house and try…


Self improvement is one of the many things we tend to let slide as life gets busier. Don’t neglect yourself this month!

Barrie offers a boatload of options for personal enrichment; including continuing education course at Georgian, language courses at College Boreal, multiple types of yoga, and training in meditation.

If Yoga and meditation are areas in particular you’d like to explore, check out this class introduction from Sarah Melody.


Besides the terrific assortment of walking and hiking trails in town, June is the unofficial kickoff of the outdoor season in Barrie. Late in the month is the premier of the Outdoor Movies season from the Barrie Film Festival.

And on June 9th the Local Love Market returns to the east end of the city. The event features 25 vendors, including artisans, awesome food, and interactivity. You can find stuff for bath, body, health + wellness, jewelry, and clothing.

And don’t forget about the Barrie Baycats! The reigning IBL champs have a number of home games this month, tickets are just $5


There is never a shortage of live music options in Barrie, and June will see a boatload of talented artists take the stage this month.

And if you fancy yourself the next Drake, you can put your talent on the line at the Simcoe Rising Star Challenge on June 23rd at the Ferndale Banquet Hall.

But if you are looking for more of a cerebral night out, consider this low key night at Flying Monkey’s. It’s a free non-partisan get-together and open discussion for anyone interested in learning about and getting involved in politics.

And of course, if it’s just the wobbly pop you are keen on, you can take the weight off at one of the great patios in town with an adult beverage from a local craft brewery.
