Interested in becoming a BarrieFolk sponsor?

BarrieFolk has several generous sponsors for whom we are grateful. The Gryphon Guild has renewed their sponsorship for this year’s Youth Songwriting Showcase and we’re thrilled. Thrive Therapeutics will also be coming back as a sponsor for our 2015 BarrieFolk for Folks fall concert series at the MacLaren.

If you’d be interested in supporting live music in Barrie, just email [email protected] and we will provide you with the details. Wouldn’t you love to sponsor Valdy? He will be returning to the area on Saturday, March 21 in a concert at the MacLaren Art Centre. Tickets are available at the MacLaren and online.
