The Barrie Fair Bus!

You asked, we delivered! 2017 was the first year for the Barrie Fair bus, courtesy of Full Moon Plumbing in Barrie! We are looking forward to future years with the Barrie Fair bus, so we can help connect the residents of Barrie to their Barrie Fair! Say tuned to this page for more information about the 2018 Barrie Fair Bus Schedule and Pick-Up information!


The Essa & District Agricultural Society strives to make our fair grounds accessible.
