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.)

Constructed in 1854 for one of the town's first settlers, this heritage limestone house has served as a community museum and local history research centre for over 50 years. The museum offers both permanent and changing exhibits relating to the history of the area. Historic photographs, local newspapers, maps, family and community histories can be accessed in the R. Lorne Eedy Archive.

Throughout the year, the museum promotes understanding and enjoyment of local heritage through special programs and exhibits.


Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

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