How to get here

The Town of Collingwood is ideally situated along the picturesque shoreline of Nottawasaga Bay in the heart of Ontario’s finest four-season destination area, in the northwest corner of the County of Simcoe.
From Toronto

Highway 400 northbound will get you to Barrie, and from there, take the Bayfield Street exit, following the signs to Highway 26 West, and into Stayner. At the main intersection in Stayner, head north on 26, and you’ll find your way right into the heart of Collingwood.

If you’re looking for a more scenic route, take County Road 90 West to Angus, and head north on County Road 10/Brentwood Road. Once you reach Sunnidale Corners, you’ll join up with Highway 26, head west into Stayner, then follow Highway 26 north from the main intersection, right into Collingwood.

Avoiding Hwy 400

If you’re heading to Collingwood from the GTA, and you’d like to avoid Highway 400, there are a number of alternate routes you can check out.
The Gore Road (County Road 8) and Dixie Road (County Road 4/12/7) will both take you north to Highway 9, where you can join Airport Road just east of Orangeville. Going north on Airport Road will take you right into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood.
You can also head west on Highway 89 and join up with Airport Road just west of Rosemont, and head north into the main intersection of Stayner, where you can continue north on Highway 26 into Collingwood.
Keep in mind there are a number of other festivals taking place in Simcoe County this weekend, and area roads may be busy.

Roundabouts

Highway 26 has several roundabouts in the Collingwood area. A roundabout is a circular intersection where two or more roads meet. Traffic circulates through them counter-clockwise, to the right of a centre island. All entering vehicles must yield to traffic already in the roundabout. For more information on roundabouts, visit the Ministry of Transportation website. http://www.mto.gov.on.ca/english/ontario-511/roundabouts.shtml
