Things to See & Do
The cultural lure of Stratford—come and indulge!
We say it without hesitation: Stratford is Canada’s premier town for the arts. From the finest Shakespeare company in North America to one of the largest costume warehouses in the world, we have it all, and we want to share it with you. We love art in all its forms, and we see that it’s available everywhere—from our theatre scene to fine-arts galleries to hand-crafted quilts and other beautiful objets for life and the home. And have we mentioned that’s we’re mad about music? We offer a host of concerts, recitals, and festivals all year-‘round.
We simply couldn’t live without art, everywhere, all the time. Surely you can’t, either? Come to visit. We’ll feed your soul.
