Canada Day celebrations return to Barrie for the country’s 149th birthday, and the city is preparing a party to mark the day, and also the 100th anniversary of Canadian Women’s Suffrage, and the 175th birthday of Sir Wilfred Laurier.
The event will feature family activities, vendors, live entertainment and more funded in part by the Government of Canada and the Downtown Barrie Business Association.
“Once again this year, the Government of Canada has been very generous in supporting our annual Canada Day event,” says Mayor Jeff Lehman. “This is always a highlight of the year in Barrie, and it gets better each year thanks in part to this funding — and our amazing community that comes together to celebrate being Canadian.”
The festivities will include cultural presentations and entertainment on the Promenade Days stage, featuring local roadhouse country band Terry Savage & the Wonky Honkees, East Coast/Canadiana/Francophone musicians The Connors Brothers, Aboriginal pop sensation Shawnee and special guests the Sudbury Youth Orchestra. There will also be a birthday cake cut by local dignitaries and a wide range of activities in Heritage Park including face painting, exhibitors, inflatables, vendors and games from 1 to 9 p.m.
Capping off the night, the City of Barrie will present a spectacular fireworks show over Kempenfelt Bay starting at 10 p.m. In case of inclement weather, fireworks will be held Saturday, July 2.
The Canada Day festivities kick off Promenade Days running July 1 to 3 in downtown Barrie. Promenade Days features vendors, street patios, family activities, and entertainment along Dunlop Street.
