Don’t miss this sweet opportunity to support world-class, life-saving patient care close to home with the inaugural Barrie Butter Tart Festival taking part on Dunlop Street as a part of the Open Air Dunlop festivities on July 13, 2024.

Whether you are #TeamRaisin or #TeamPecan, there will be plenty to go around! Over 160 local and small business owners from butter tarts, baked goods, and sweet treats, to marketplace vendors waiting for you to taste and try their products.

The Butter Tart: An RVH Original

The festival proudly supports the RVH Keep Life Wild Campaign, aiding the future expansion of the Royal Victoria Regional Health Centre.

The original butter tart recipe, dating back to 1903 and originating from the RVH Auxiliary, will be available as a collector’s cutout for $5, with all proceeds going towards this vital campaign.

“We are thrilled that this event will support the RVH Keep Life Wild Campaign,” says Mary-Anne Frith, RVH Campaign Chair. “The original butter tart recipe is not just a piece of culinary history; it’s a symbol of community and care.

Every dollar raised will help ensure that world-class, life-saving care remains accessible right here in Barrie.
