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 7: Adding a round-about at Line 26 between Stratford and St. Marys/London/401 W
Exits from this roundabout to Line 26 are now closed. This first phase of construction should not significantly affect through traffic on Hwy 7; however, from July 2nd until October, the roundabout will be closed to all traffic. Detours will be signposted, and drivers should allow extra time to follow them.
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.)
Chocolate Barr's Candies is now in it's 16th year of sweet business! Located in our new building at 55 George Street West we are thrilled to showcase our over 171 chocolate and candy treats. All handmade on site and sure to delight! It will be hard to decide between our chocolate covered sponge toffee and our chili pepper truffles. Derek is now hand crafting his own Gelato and Sorbetto in house. With flavours like 'Sea Salt Caramel', 'Chocolate Mintie', and 'Mocha', as well as traditional Raspberry and Mango Sorbetto.
Now 140 steps from the Avon Theatre, and across form the downtown LCBO! Lots of parking!!
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.”
