Barrie Waterfront Festival

On May 25th – May 27th, 2018, the 14th Annual spring line-up will present live bands from a variety of genres.  For your added enjoyment, free outdoor entertainment will be brought to the table: street buskers, a midway with rides, face painting, street vendors, fresh food, treats, contests and food trucks. Don’t miss this weekend with your family; eat, drink and have fun while sharing in Barrie’s terrific community spirit.

The FREE ADMISSION BIG 101.1 AND 93.1 FRESH RADIO will be located in Heritage Park with an adjacent beer garden.  Festivities will kick off at 5 pm on Friday, May 25th and continue until 10:00pm.  Festivities will continue Saturday May 26th from noon to 10 pm and Sunday May 27th from noon until 6 pm.

Lido Chilelli and Pat Carpignano organize the event – the same producers that created Toronto’s Beaches International Jazz Festival, now in its 29th year of operation and drawing crowds in excess of 900,000 people.  Chilelli, recipient of the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal, and Carpignano are proud to be part of this exciting event in Barrie and have personally selected bands that are real crowd pleasers.
