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 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.)

Attractions for the whole family in Stratford

A quiet weekend in the country can be the perfect way for both parents and kids to take a breather and discover the quieter side of life. When you visit the beautiful country in and around Stratford, you can tour a century-old working farm with hayrides and in the fall, you can try your hand at pumpkin tossing, or you can pick your own apples on a family farm. You can also learn about the Canada's contribution to North American baseball and swim in Canada's largest swimming hole. Whatever you’re in the mood for, we offer an out-of-the-ordinary experience for young and old alike.
