Be sure to plan ahead before visiting this fall, as many operators are running at reduced capacity or are closed for the season due to COVID-19. When in BruceGreySimcoe, follow social distancing protocols, wear a mask and wash your hands frequently.

Immerse yourself in history and creativity at BruceGreySimcoe’s museums, art galleries and studios. These cultural treasures are tucked here and there in small communities and pretty downtowns, the perfect excuse for a fall road trip!  Visit our three county museums (call ahead for new protocols and hours of operation due to COVID-19) – Bruce County Museum & Cultural Centre, Grey Roots Museum & Archives and the Simcoe County Museum – for the lowdown on area history, interactive exhibits and fun programming all ages can enjoy.  And, don’t miss the iconic Sainte-Marie among the Hurons in Midland, a step back in time to 17th-century Ontario (open until Thanksgiving).
 
Check ahead to confirm hours and new visiting protocols to avoid disappointment.

As Ontario slowly starts to open up, so do our live entertainment venues - contact them individually for what they have to offer. 

Live theatre and musical performances grace the stages of our intimate historic theatres as well as our larger contemporary theatres and cultural centres.  Casina Rama Resort (currently closed due to COVID-19) near Orillia showcases world-class musical talent, while smaller venues like Meaford Hall, Heartwood HallSimcoe Street Theatre and Victoria Jubilee Hall feature well-known artists and a variety of presentations.

Virtual events have been popping up across the region to give you your live music fix. Check out Chris Scerri's From Home Music Series for great artists like Marshall Dane, Brooke Blackburn, Craig Smith, Tyler and Linsey Beckett and Shakey Trill.

It’s studio tour season, too, when our talented artists showcase their artwork and feature demonstrations in their natural element.  In-town and out-in-the-country, the vibrant colours of the artists’ work are echoed by the brilliant fall foliage.

Plan a daytrip or an overnight stay – always enlightening, BruceGreySimcoe, Ontario!
