Our Towns – Collingwood

Southern Georgian Bay Spotlight2018-8-10By: Janet Lees

Simcoe Street, Collingwood. Once a forgotten downtown side street; today a bustling hub of arts and culture, with galleries, restaurants, an independent bookstore, theatre, and the town’s modern library. 

It all started when a rundown hotel called the Tremont was saved from the wrecking ball. Now fully restored, the Tremont is home to artist studios, galleries, and a restaurant.

Next came the former newspaper building, converted into creative space, with a 100-seat black box theatre, art galleries, a dance studio, coffee shop and bookstore.

More creative businesses followed, and today Simcoe Street is the jewel of Collingwood’s thriving arts and culture scene.
