Where to celebrate New Year’s Eve in Barrie

Here's to 2022!

Making plans for New Year’s Eve? The City of Barrie is making it easy to have some fun while keeping safety a top priority.

With social gatherings limited to 10 people over the holidays, you might be looking for something to do with the family that doesn’t involve what most of us did last year, sitting in front of the TV watching a countdown with a handful of people in attendance.

Instead of one large downtown countdown event, the City of Barrie is planning a number of smaller events all around the city, to keep attendance numbers lower, but fun levels just as high! Happening throughout the evening on Dec 31, you’ll be able to head to the Holly Community Centre, East Bayfield Community Centre, Centennial Park Community Ice Rink, and The Circle at the Centre outside City hall for a ton of different activities.

Taking a tour to each of the locations, Trulee Odd will also be amazing audiences with unique and awe-inspiring feats of skill. From the time he makes his entrance on a tiny motorcycle until his heart-stopping finale, 15 feet in the air, juggling knives, blindfolded, on a unicycle, you won’t want to miss a second.
