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.)

Just a short drive south of Stratford, St. Marys is a picturesque town featuring unique limestone architecture and Canada's largest freshwater swimming pool - the Quarry. Vibrant shops, stocked with handcrafted treasures, home décor, craft supplies, designer floral bouquets, clothing and delicious treats line St. Marys’ historic downtown.

Experience the flavour of the local heritage at the St. Marys Museum, Canadian Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum or by attending one of many annual festivals or events listed below.


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.”
