Illuminate Barrie Festival

The Illuminate Barrie Festival will be an unforgettable experience you won’t want to miss. Ignite your passion for our country at this one-of-a-kind celebration along Barrie’s waterfront on Labour Day weekend.

This family-friendly event will include live entertainment, distinctly Canadian foods and activities, a local producers and vendor market, a heritage village, and breathtaking Canada 150 themed fireworks choreographed to music.

Illuminate Barrie plans are in the works — stay informed here and on social media as updates are confirmed.

From ‘Celebrate’ to ‘Illuminate’

Canada’s 150th is a milestone worth moving for. To help build momentum for Canada 150, Celebrate Barrie will evolve and transform into Illuminate Barrie — an expanded event capturing the spirit of Canada 150 throughout the Labour Day long weekend. Celebrate Barrie will return on the first Saturday in June 2018.
