Live Music in the Speak

Another Friday night in February means another night to get your fingers snappin’ and your toes tappin’ with Live Music in the Speak. Wrap your lips around some signature cocktails, order up some delicious charcuterie boards, and enjoy the musical stylings of Jazz-Mandhu. Reservations are not necessary but are recommended.

February 28th – 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM


Horseshoe Resort

The snow is coming, you can’t stop it so you might as well make the best of it by grabbing your board, boots, and poles for a day on the slopes at Horshoe Resort. Don’t forget to bring your skates too for the hillside rink and when you need a break from the cold, warm up with some delicious food at the Crazy Horse.

February 28th to March 1st – Open 24 hours



Black History Month Celebration

The City of Barrie and Making Change are hosting the perfect way to wrap up Black History Month with a series of speakers, artists, musicians, and poets at the Black History Month Celebration. Embrace inclusion, diversity, and experience Simcoe County in a new way.
