2015 Downtown Countdown

Wednesday, December 31, 2014
7:00pm – 12:15am

The City of Barrie is proud to present the 17th annual Downtown Countdown in partnership with Rock 95 and 107.5 Kool FM. Traveling from near and far, thousands join together in downtown Barrie to ring in the New Year with a free evening of fun and entertainment for the whole family! The celebration began in 1998, which very quickly became a tradition for the community and grew to be one of the largest New Year's Eve events in Central Ontario.

Festivities begin at 7:00pm and include skating on the Circle at the Centre rink, horse-drawn wagon rides, face painting, food vendors, and two fireworks spectaculars - one for the early revelers following the family show and the other at the stroke of midnight.

The highlight of the night is a line-up of amazing live entertainment featuring a special performance for families, up-and-coming talent, and a Canadian headline act not to be missed. Past performers have included Blue Rodeo, The Trews, Sloan, April Wine, Big Wreck, Bedouin Soundclash, Jeff Healey, Kim Mitchell, and many more.

This year's line-up will be announced during the first week of December, so stay tuned for all of the exciting details!
