Busking Community Consultation

The City of Barrie’s Department of Culture is inviting the community to participate in developing a permit process for busking within the downtown core.  Buskers, residents and business owners interested in providing input into this process are welcome to join us Wednesday May 20th at the Downtown Community Theatre located at #1 Dunlop Street West from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.

Items for discussion will include best practices from other communities, appropriate length of performances, suitable locations, application and cost of permits, selection criteria, insurance requirements, the parameters of the downtown core and how the process will work.  If you cannot attend the meeting but want to participate in the process you are welcome to e-mail the staff within the Department of Culture with your comments at ogroves at barrie.ca.
We also ask all Buskers to please bring your contact information and/or bio’s with you.  Thank you!
