To share our passion for good food, we are excited to build off of last year’s successful launch with Stratford Al Fresco 2021 featuring expanded dining experiences (including paired wines, craft beers and drinks) and safe outdoor dining areas at various spots in the city. With spaces that fit over 200 people, you can dine outdoors with delicious takeout and accompanying drinks from Stratford restaurants. Al Fresco areas feature umbrellas, hand sanitizer stations, and waste and recycle bins.
We’ve got restaurants offering a variety of cultures and tastes waiting to be enjoyed under the sun or stars. In the warmer seasons, you can take these delicious meals to any of the designated Al Fresco dining locations around the city (you can find Al Fresco dining at Market Square, Memorial Gardens, Tom Patterson Island and approved downtown parkland). Stay tuned for 2021 Al Fresco details!
