Carnegie Days are back! This annual arts festival offers great events for visitors of all ages that explore the role language plays in contemporary art. Special exhibitions, performances, readings, artists’ talks, screenings, guided tours and hands-on family workshops take place at the MacLaren Art Centre and in downtown Barrie. Carnegie Days coincides with Culture Days, which highlights free, cultural attractions in downtown Barrie. This year’s festival theme is Book Club, which focuses on book clubs and book sharing.

Carnegie Days draws on the origins of the MacLaren's building as a 1917 Carnegie public library and celebrates the legacy of Scottish-born American philanthropist Andrew Carnegie, who built over 2,500 public libraries in the English speaking world.

In partnership with Simcoe Contemporary Dancers and the Barrie Public Library.

Presented in conjunction with Ontario Culture Days.
