The Barrie Folk Society (BFS) 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 BFS hosts bi-monthly open mic events at both library locations in Barrie to showcase local talent of all ages.

The BFS was formed in response to the wants and needs of the local folk music community in and around the Barrie area. Our main goal 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.

We host many events that involve the passionate public. From our library open mic opportunities to house concerts and other events, there are many ways to indulge your love of music.
