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.)

Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

That perfect place….

How many beautiful wedding scenarios can you think of? Imagine exchanging vows at an intimate outdoor summer wedding on an island on the Avon River as swans glide by. Or a sweet celebration at Christmastime with a handful of close friends in a heritage B&B. What about the charm of a pastoral wedding in a beautiful grove of trees, with an Amish carriage ride, and a banquet under the stars created by a master chef using local foods? 

Stratford combines natural beauty and charm with the magical, joyful aura of the theatre; what other place in the world whispers romance like our town?

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

- Amy Alipio, Associate Editor, National Geographic Traveler
