Check Here For An Updated List of Things To in Barrie This Weekend

So, the Leafs lost. In Game 7. In Boston. AGAIN.

But this year you don’t have to crawl into bed for a month with kleenex and a bottle of Tequilia (that’s how everyone copes with disappointment…right?)

There are plenty of things to in the city by the lake to take your mind off the crippling, omnipresent existential agony of cheering for Toronto sports teams. Damn it…where’s that bottle?

Keep in mind that you can find all the events listed, as well as events coming in the days ahead on our events page.


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!

Assuming everyone recovers from the double entendre of a long weekend and 4/20, it will be another packed ticket on the Barrie concert scene.

The Foxx brings the noise on Friday with a slate of metal and heavy alternative acts from around the province. On Saturday things slow down just a wee bit with one of Barrie’s favourite funk bands, The Noolands, headlining. Doors are at 9pm for both.

Elsewhere, Donaleigh’s has Get The Funk Out and Memphis Mudd. Flying Monkeys brings in Emberly A Duo and Dav Dickenson. And Dwayne Gretzky is at Mavrick’s.


You know what’s great about racing? It’s a sport that doesn’t have a goaltender who lets in bad goals at the worst possible time. Ok, seriously WHERE IS THAT BOTTLE?

Anyway, this Saturday is the kickoff of Nascar season at Sunset Speedway. The Speedway has been producing some of the best racing talent in the country since they opened back in 1968. They hold races every Saturday through to September (weather permitting) and even offer drivers of any experience level to take a spin in the cars! Read up on it right here


Dress For Success is back at the Bayfield Mall. It’s a great opportunity to score gently worn clothes for mega cheap, as low as $2.

The dresses are suitable for weddings, prom, summer parties. Shoes too! It all begins on Friday.
