2013 Street Performers Program – Auditions now being scheduled!

Mark your calendars for an afternoon of singing, guitar playing, dancing and magic tricks!


Monday, March 18th in the City Hall Rotunda, the City of Barrie Department of Culture and Downtown Barrie (BIA) will be holding auditions for street performers who will be permitted to perform in the downtown core.


A permit process for street performers was developed in 2009 that allows talented performers to share their abilities throughout the downtown city streets and engage the public. Any and all interested candidates are encouraged to try out between 5:00 pm and 9:00 pm on March 18th but they must book an appointment first.


Auditions will be booked through the Department of Culture by calling (705) 739-4299 or by sending a message to culture@barrie.ca.


Auditions will be between 5 – 7 minutes in length so if you are an interested performer please prepare your presentation accordingly. Members of the community are welcome to drop in, pull up a chair and enjoy the performances of some of Barrie’s most talented individuals.


If you would like to know the schedule for the evening please call (705) 739-4299 and we will be happy to share it with you.


For more information on the street performer permit process please contact the Department of Culture at (705) 739-4299.
