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.)

August 31st Forage&Feast Event

Late August offering feature several types of Boletes including what some call The Wild Porcini. This family of mushrooms is quite easy to identify simply because it has no gills. Instead there is a "spongy" substance that bruises olive to blue when touched. They are quite delicious especially when harvested young. These will be one of the many mushrooms we will forage for along with wild leek bulbs and amazing wild ginger. After our foraging segment we return to the Forest Motel where a four course meal awaits us, served under banquet tents alongside a lovely lake. Truffle Gouda from Mountain Oak Cheese along with baguettes from The Downie Street Bakehouse will be the opening fare followed by our popular Summer Sorrel and Potato Soup. Our main course will be a Wild Mushroom Bolognese followed by fresh peach pies from The Black Angus Bakery. Locally brewed craft beers and wines from Niagara are also included. 

Cost: Sorry, this event is sold out.
$75/Per person

Location: Packham Sports Complex, Stratford,
