You Could Never Get Bored in Collingwood!

I once had a client who, after six months of living in South Georgian Bay, told me that her biggest problem was that there was too much fun stuff to do!
It’s true.  There is nary a day that goes by that there is not something interesting to participate in or enjoy.  While I could never keep up with sharing all the opportunities, a few upcoming events did catch my eye.

March 31st

My friend Harry from Zencha Tea Bar is now in charge of Tuesday night events for the Blue Mountain Foundation for the Arts.  He sent an email today to let me know about an awesome event tomorrow night:

Just a quick shout out to let you know of a terrific event happening on Tuesday, March 31, starting at 7:30 p.m.. YOUNG AND ROCKIN is a celebration of our young musical talents. Four handpicked musicians high school age and younger will each be performing at this free event, to take place at the BMFA Arts Centre, 163 Hurontario Street (across from zencha tea bar).  These young up-and-comers are being asked to both educate and entertain, to talk about their relationship to music and to a career in music, and to regale the audience with their musical prowess.  Please come out and help support our young talent!

April 1st
According to the folks at Espresso Post,  spring WILL absolutely begin in Collingwood on April 1st.  Here’s an email I got from them the other day:

To all friends of Espresso Post…

Rain  Shine  Snow  Sleet  Hail
When it’s April 1st we all know what:


Join in on the official kickoff to spring in Collingwood on the front patio of Espresso Post on Wednesday April 1st.  We will be offering free espresso shots from 10am – noon.

The Town Crier will be making the official announcement at 10:30am sharp directly followed by three cheers and an espresso toast!  Feel free to bring musical instruments, grass skirts, funny shirts, wool sweaters, snowmobile suits (you never know what the temperature will be).

If you can’t make it for the Town Crier at 10:30 am, we are accepting full-size cardboard cutouts if you have one handy.

So, you can see why I can’t resist sharing this.  Besides, they have the BEST coffee, bar none, in Collingwood.

April 29th and 30th
Our own Canadian Idol, Drew Wright, will be performing at the Gayety Theatre in downtown Collingwood on April 29th and 30th. He will be playing with his new band called Fall and Divide. Ticket prices are $29.99 for the show or, $44.99 if you’d like to stay for a meet and greet afterwards.  Every ticket holder get’s a free 5 song demo CD from the band that will be ready for pick up at the show.  Collingwood has shown Drew much love and you can join in too.  Tickets are available at Gabriele Photography at 133 Hurontario Street in downtown Collingwood.

May 16th and 30th
Thirdly, there are two events coming up in may that I just can’t wait to attend!  On Saturday, May 16th, you can enjoy an evening of song and dialogue celebrating our Planet Earth. As part of the Georgian Triangle Earth Days Celebrations, this event will feature The Nylons and Green party Leader, Elizabeth May.  On May 30th, the same group will feature Author, Thomas Homer-Dixon who wrote such books as The Carbon Shift, The Ingenuity Gap and one of my favourites of all time – The Upside of Down.  Personally, I wish everyone in the world would read these three books.  Details of these events can be found here.
