Welcome to Stratford!

In Canada, Stratford is synonymous with the stage. Each year, the town's Theatre Festival attracts over 600,000 visitors to live performances of Shakespeare and a plethora of other classic playwrights. The festival began over 50 years ago as a means of replacing the dying railroad industry. Today, it is the largest classical repertory event in North America. As if to embellish the lyricism of Shakespeare with sheer visual grace, Stratford's Avon River is also home to a famous population of swans swimming a picturesque shoreline river flanked by meticulously kept parks. On the streets, restaurants are plentiful and memorable, partly because the city is home to a number of recognized cooking schools that have set high standards for cuisine. To explore Stratford, many visitors opt for the gentle pace of a walking tour and stay in one the town's numerous B&Bs. With a population of roughly 30,000 Stratford is relatively small, but it seems the entire town throws out a welcoming B&B sign during the summer months to accommodate visitors in style.
