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.)


Likeness of Justin Bieber from Stratford

Everybody knows it. Justin Bieber is from our town—he’s a [Stratford, Ontario] boy. And he’s our favourite pop star. And although he’s now an international musical sensation, he still comes back regularly to visit his good friends.

When Justin was growing up, there were a lot of places around Stratford where he hung out or that now have special meaning for him—from the steps of the Avon Theatre, where he first started singing and earned enough to take his mom to Disneyworld, to the place he went on his first date.

We’ve created a map to help you take a tour of Justin Bieber’s Stratford—the schools he went to, the ice cream parlour he visited after soccer games, and the skate park where he learned the moves we now all see in his videos.

Download our Bieber-iffic Map of Stratford, and have a great time! Printed maps available at Stratford Tourism, 47 Downie Street, Stratford for $1.00 each.young bieber on drums

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