Barnstorm #21 Cancelled Due to COVID-19

Music is something that brings us together; Barnstorm does just that.

So, with a heavy heart, I need to share that the 2020 version of Barnstorm, scheduled to take place on August 29 in Finch, ON is cancelled due to ongoing concerns over COVID-19.

Even though local COVID-19 transmission has decreased, there are still too many “unknowns” to risk going ahead with a large event. The health and safety of our fans, crew and artists is a priority.

This year would have marked 21 years of the event. I am planning to hold the 2021 version, same time, same place, on August 21 next year.

I know how much happiness Barnstorm brings people; I see it on all your faces each year as you walk through the gate to meet up with friends and family. In the meantime, stay hopeful, stay safe, stay tuned, and continue to support local artists!

Back From The Grave And Ready To Party

So, we decided to have a Halloween Party. This is not a Barnstorm, but it’s happening at the Corporate Headquarters of Barnstorm. Directions are located at

CAMP in the Barn “Odditorium”! It’s official, sleep inside a barn, since the weather will be not be ideal. The place is not heated, but you’re out of the wind and any possible rain. To make things cozy, space has been cleared on the balcony for small tents, or airbags and sleeping bags. There are a few couches! There is part of a shipping container available.

– $10.00 without costume, FREE with costume!

– Dress Warm.

– We’ll have some warm food, coffee, and munchies for free.

– 6 Bonfires will be lit.

– Free Loot bags!

– Prize for best costume.

– Come early, see what’s left of the autumn colours.

– Dress Warm, It’s October 29th!

– BYOB and food (BBQ available, or order from the restaurant in Town)

Barnstorm 17, new things you should know

Barnstorm 17 is just a few weeks away and here are a few things you should know. Get your tickets online and don’t be a “Late Bird” and pay $40.00 at the gate.

We also have two raffles one of which is this bike, so bring some cash!

Sometimes things defy explanation. Not the Brewster. This is an urban assault bike with a go anywhere attitude. With massive 4″ tires, an aggressive stance, an 8-speed drivetrain and disc brakes, this bike is unlike anything else on the road. Wherever you want to ride, the Brewster is ready to take you there.

Marrow & Spice will be on site serving some yummies such as Jamaican Jerk leg quarters, fish tea, and sausage on a stick all in the $5.00 range.

Barnstorm competes with many other festivals, and on Aug 20th, instead of missing Barnstorm, and watching it alone at home, it will be available to watch here on a giant screen. I do not want to disrespect the musicians, but I’m sure some will want to sneak a peek.
