Come downtown and celebrate
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!

Cake Cutting Ceremony
6pm @ Top of Memorial Square
Come down to the Owen Street Main Stage at 6pm to share some fantastic Canada Day cake baked by one of our local Downtown bakeries Cakes By Design. This cake will surely impress as it is the size of not one but two large tables!...and that means lots of cake for lots of people! Local dignitaries will help cut and plate the hundreds of pieces – come early, there will be a line!
10pm @ Kempenfelt Bay
With Downtown Barrie located by a waterfront second to none, it only lends itself a spectacular venue for the Canada Day fireworks. The fireworks will launch at 10pm – viewing is great along any part of the waterfront but if you are close to the Downtown Main Stage you will be treated to a 'Celestial Fire' coordinating music presentation as the sky lights up!
