logoIlluminate Barrie:
Celebrate Canada 150

This year, Canadians from coast-to-coast-to-coast will be celebrating 150 years as a nation.  Barrie has countless reasons to join in the festivities — so let’s come together and Illuminate Barrie in honour of Canada 150.

Canada 150 is a tremendous opportunity for residents and visitors to celebrate our country — and city — together. Experience this historical year in Barrie as we infuse our popular events and festivals with a uniquely Canadian twist and add some exciting Canada 150 initiatives to showcase Barrie’s ‘true north strong and free’ spirit!        

The Illuminate Barrie logo signifies City of Barrie events and activities that celebrate Canada 150 in some way. Illuminate Barrie events and activities will kick-off on June 28 with an Air Show followed by Canada Day activities and will run until the Illuminate Barrie Festival which takes place September 2 & 3, 2017.
