Street Performers Program

The Street Performers Program was developed in partnership with the Downtown Barrie Business Association in 2009 as part of downtown revitalization efforts with the purpose of creating a lively and dynamic atmosphere in the City's core. 

Each year auditions take place through a jury process and those selected are permitted to share their abilities with the public in select locations in downtown Barrie. The 2018 Street Performer auditions will take place in April of 2018. Stay tuned!
