Street Performers Program

The street performers program was developed in 2009 as part of the downtown revitalization efforts, with the purpose of creating a more positive atmosphere in the downtown area. Each year auditions take place through a jury process and those who are selected are permitted to share their abilities throughout the downtown streets and engage the public. 

Audition Process Now Open!

Mark your calendars for an evening of singing, guitar playing, dancing and magic! 

The Department of Culture and Downtown Barrie (BIA) will be holding auditions to select the 2015 street performers on March 26, 2015, from 3:00 pm to 8:30 pm. This year the program will hire the successful performers to work in Barrie's downtown core. These performers will be hired by the City of Barrie and they will have pre-determined schedules for their performances. 

Any and all interested candidates are encouraged to contact the Department of Culture to book an appointment for an audition - call (705) 739-4299 or email Auditions will run 5-7 minutes, and performers should come prepared with material to showcase the best of their talents.

Members of the community are welcome to drop in and enjoy performances by some of Barrie’s most talented individuals.  If you would like the schedule of performances in advance, please contact the Department of Culture.
