Don't miss this weekend with your family; eat, drink and have fun while sharing in Barrie’s terrific community spirit.

The FREE ADMISSION BIG 101.1 AND 93.1 FRESH RADIO will be located in Centennial Park with an adjacent beer garden.  Festivities will kick off at 5 pm on Friday, May 22nd and continue until 10:00pm.  Festivities will continue Saturday May 23rd from noon to 10 pm and Sunday May 24th from noon until 6 pm.

Lido Chilelli and Pat Carpignano organize the event - the same producers that created Toronto's Beaches International Jazz Festival, now in its 32nd year of operation and drawing crowds in excess of 900,000 people.  Chilelli, recipient of the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal, and Carpignano are proud to be part of this exciting event in Barrie and have personally selected bands that are real crowd pleasers.
