Return to What's On

When you’re looking for quality Ontario events, Stratford definitely has the right mix. Ongoing museum exhibitions, like the Stratford Perth MuseumSt. Marys Museum, Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame, and Castle Kilbride, or gallery exhibitions, from Gallery Stratford, An Artist’s Cottage featuring Gerard Brender a Brandis, and The Canadian Clay and Glass Gallery, plus retail galleries like Agora Gallery, Koolen Fine Arts and Mountain Galleries East, means that there is always something great to see and do.

Mixing in annual weekend events, like the Stratford Kiwanis Garlic Festival, SpringWorks PuppetWorks!, Stratford Writers Festival and Appetite for Words, and multi-week festivals, like Stratford Summer Music, plus regular music events and theatre performances, and you’ll wonder how you will get time to do everything you want to do.

Our event calendar captures the essence of what is happening in Stratford and area from the Stratford Festival performances happening from April to November, and Blyth Festival from June to September, to live music happening at local pubs, like The Boar’s Head, Molly Bloom’s Irish Pub, and Scran and Dran, from indie artists and up-and-comers who are getting experience on the road to their next stage. Don’t forget the Stratford Festival has hundreds of Forum events each year – guided Backstage Tours at the main Stratford Festival Theatre, guided Costume Warehouse Tours (dressing up at the end is not optional) at their massive costume and prop facility, Archives Tours exploring this year’s archives themes, Set Changeovers at the Festival Theatre, Meet the Festival to get a chance to hear the actors speak about their experiences here, and thought-provoking guests from all over the world covering topics that are important to a thinking society.

Seasonal events are also a mainstay of the event calendar. Celebrate with Halloween events like Ghost Walks, Christmas events and dinners, New Year’s events and dinners, Valentine’s Day events and welcoming spring with fresh events.

No matter what your taste in events and attractions, there is definitely something in Stratford and area that will bring you joy and encourage you to explore more. You’ll need to return again to catch everything that you couldn’t fit in last time!

 

“Stratford itself is the type of walkable wholesome town Rodgers and Hammerstein might write a musical about.”
