The Barrie Folk Society was formed by a small group of passionate music lovers who had one single goal in mind: to bring music to the masses, close to home.

The Barrie Folk Society hosts the third annual Barrie Folk Music Festival this year, many Open Mic events and Library Shows at various times of the year to showcase local talent of all ages.

The Barrie Folk Society was formed in response to the wants and needs of the local folk music community in and around the Barrie area. The main goal of the Barrie Folk Society is to bring Folk music to the masses through a not-for-profit organization that cares about the growth and nurturing of the folk music movement.

The Barrie Folk Society hosts many events that involve the passionate public. From Library Open Mic opportunities to House concerts and the annual BarrieFolk: Live. Original. Music fall event, there are many events that demand your attention and are well worth the visit!
