Come downtown and celebrate

Canada's Birthday

Downtown Barrie is the place to celebrate Canada's birthday! With the generous support of Heritage Canada, we have been able to put together a great selection of activities, entertainment and fun that helps us celebrate Canada's diversity, heritage and culture in our own local way!


This year the theme is "Strong. Proud. Free." Be sure to support by using the hashtag #StrongProudFree on all your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram messages. Be sure to follow @Canada150th and Facebook.com/canada150th. Canada Day presents a unique opportunity to share our national pride as we move closer to the 150th anniversary of Confederation in 2017!
