PRESS RELEASECity extends cancellation of event permits until Sept. 8
Friday, June 19, 2020

​(Barrie, ON) The City of Barrie is extending the cancellation of special event permits until at least Sept. 8. The cancellation will be regularly reviewed by the City's Emergency Control Group and could be extended based on the most current advice of Public Health. Special event permits have been cancelled in the City since April 6.

The Province is still strongly discouraging non-essential in-person gatherings of any size and has restricted social gathering limits to a maximum of 10 people. The Province has also indicated that even at Stage 3, the physical distancing will be a continued practice.

Considering these restrictions and health and safety concerns, event organizers have already cancelled some popular summer events in Barrie such as Promenade Days, the Craft Beer and BBQ and Kempenfest.

The City will continually update its website at as the situation changes.
