7 Things To Do This Weekend (December 27th to 29th)

Christmas might be over but that doesn't mean the fun is!

Blue Rodeo Live

Wedged between Christmas and New Years, Blue Rodeo will be at the Sadlon Arena this weekend playing favorites like “Hasn’t Hit Me Yet”, “Try”, and “5 Days In May”. Tickets start at only $75 so it’s an awesome opportunity to check out this Canadian country-rock band from Toronto.

December 29th – 8:00 PM

Barrie Colts VS Oshawa Generals

At what will be their first meeting of the season, the Barrie Colts will host the visiting Oshawa Generals in a game where the Colts have somewhat of a chip on their shoulders. Why? Last season, Oshawa swept Barrie in all four of their meetings.

December 28th – 7:30 PM


Just because Christmas is behind us doesn’t mean the fun is over! From December 26th to the 31st, Winterfest will be open every single day for you to enjoy all the festivities like the Tree Lighting Ceremony, Christmas Market, and more. Tickets are only $21.99.

December 26th to 31st – 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Live Music At Doneleighs

Doneleighs has two fantastic acts lined up this weekend with The Flailing Shillelaghs and their Irish-Celtic stylings on Friday, along with county music from Rob Watts on Saturday. Both shows are free which is good because you’ll be spending all your money on Doneleighs fantastic food and drinks!

December 27th – 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM
December 28th – 10:00 PM to 2:00 AM

Live Music At The Common Good

Christina Hutt fuses county, soul, and folk music into compositions that are an absolute treat for the ear. She will be performing live at The Common Good Cafe & Social House this weekend so the only thing sweeter than her music might be the delicious menu.

December 27th – 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM

Donate Blood

I’m cheating a little with this one but it’s for a good cause! The Barrie Blood Clinic needs donors this holiday season and you can book an appointment right now. You can book a spot for this weekend or wait until the 31st because that’s when they need donors the most. One donation can save up to three lives!
