Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!
Hwy 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W
Exits from this roundabout to Line 26 are now closed. This first phase of construction should not significantly affect through traffic on Hwy 7; however, from July 2nd until October, the roundabout will be closed to all traffic. Detours will be signposted, and drivers should allow extra time to follow them.
Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov
Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.
Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress
Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)
Thursday Jun. 27th, 2019
8:00 PM – 10:00 PM
Host: Blyth Festival
In celebration of Canada Day, a small town decides to hold a cake baking competition and everyone from the community is lining up for the chance to win a dream vacation and county-wide bragging rights.
It’s enough to bring a local nun out of her habit, send a mother-of-the-bride running with five layers (topper and all), and to unleash the winner-take-all cut-throat tactics of the town’s normally dependable Cub Scout troop leader. The oven mitts are off.
Someone’s going home with the trophy, and someone is getting butter-creamed.
This event is wheelchair accessible.
Cost: $15 Youth
Location: Blyth Memorial Community Hall , 431 Queen Street, Blyth, ON N0M 1H0
