For the second year in a row, the city presents Hello Winter – six weeks of fun, engaging and safe activities to help residents and visitors enjoy Barrie’s winter, Feb. 5 to March 20. 

Hello Winter takes place in lieu of Winterfest – a Barrie tradition and one of Ontario’s premier winter festivals. Hello Winter 2022 includes some popular programming from Winterfest, re-imagined.

“This year, Hello Winter’s theme focuses on light, to brighten the cold season and inspire a sense of hope,” says Steve Lee-Young, manager of recreation programs. “By spreading the event out over February and March and re-creating classic Winterfest favourites, we are able to safely offer experiences that celebrate what winter has to offer in our city.”

Additional Hello Winter activity highlights include:

  • Ice sculptures celebrating winter’s natural beauty, displayed at Meridian Place and Heritage Park Feb. 5 and 6;
  • A skating party with a live DJ and light show at Circle at the Centre on the evening of Feb. 11;
  • An enchanted winter trail through Sunnidale Park from Feb. 5 to 13;
  • An online ‘Community Sculpture Challenge’, where residents are invited to build creative creations and submit pictures to an online map, opening Feb. 18;
  • A Family Day adventure featuring a variety of outdoor activities at the Barrie Community Sports Complex on February 20.
