Named for Shakespeare's birthplace, Stratford has grown to become Canada’s premier arts town. In addition to the annual Stratford Festival, performing from April through October, Stratford is always filled with theater, music and visual arts. The preserved 19th-century architecture and acres of parks and gardens (along its own Avon River, no less) are certain to charm. Stratford has also gained a reputation for culinary creativity, showcased at some of the finest restaurants in the country.

A curated collection of over 20,000 artifacts celebrating the rich history of Perth County, located 7 acres of scenic rural property just West of Stratford, Ontario. Public and group tours available; ideal for school programming. Current displays include exhibits about the Stratford Festival, the history of rail in Perth County, the Perth Regiment exhibit, our Road to Woodstock/Richard Manuel exhibit and our incredibly popular Justin Bieber exhibit, Steps to Stardom.
What a wonderful museum! Enjoy a visit to early Stratford, with exhibits about the town history, the Normal School, the steam locomotive works, Stratford in the wars, and Justin Bieber. Easy to read signage and wonderful displays. in 2018 the museum also featured a display centered around Harper Lee's book "To Kill A Mockingbird" which is one of the productions at this year's Shakespeare Festival. What a fun way to take a break from watching theater.

We had a flight of beer and were able to try everything on tap. The porter was good (I'm not a fan of dark beer, but my girlfriend said it was good), the English pale ale was very good (crisp and refreshing), the IPA was very good (my girlfriend said that she finally found an IPA she could drink, I loved it), the Road Trip was also very good. We also tried the Wild Child. Note, that this is not a beer for everyone, but I LOVED it. It has such an original taste. So tart and delicious. I would love for this beer to be in the LCBO. I highly recommend a stop!

Attractive well maintained park, the eastern part has a nice pond and waterfall too. It's great for walks or to sit. Playground for kids on the West side of the park.

In the heart of Stratford, is this green space. A beautiful relaxing walk along the river amongst trees and flowers. The only negative, is the amount of garbage along the shore and by the park benches. I really don’t understand why anyone would throw their trash into this area. There were tires in the river and I have no idea how they would even get there. Other than that, it is a beautiful place to spend an hour or so.

This small gallery showcases thought provoking art in a range of mediums. They have outdoor music experiences on the lawn and you can often see classes underway when you drive by. Lovely location at the edge of a park.
