Don’t miss the fun due to construction delays!

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.)

Meet Pamela - Top 5 Stratford Series - Entertaining

Posted under TOP 5 STRATFORD SERIES on Sep 25, 2018


Meet Pamela. Vintage queen and jewellery designer, Pamela, offers her Top 5 essentials for entertaining #StratfordStyle.

Fresh flowers are a must! Pamela loves picking her own flowers to bring inside and often she will bulk them up with something special from the florist, especially if she doesn’t have something in bloom at the right time. A mix of foraged and glamourous appeals to Pamela and she can always find it at Stratford Blooms.


Pamela always sets her table with an eclectic mix of her favourite vintage treasures reflecting her style and personality. Vintage cloth napkins, mid-century glassware and serving-ware top her list with the best selection at one of her favourite shopping haunts, Stratford Antique Warehouse.


Pamela’s Soda Stream better be ready to go! Also fun, locally-crafted mixes to make a variety of (alcoholic and non-alcoholic) beverages to suit everyone. Bradshaws has a really cute new Soda Stream model (turquoise, of course!) that she’s obsessed with and always the best mixes for the bar.


Tapers and beautiful, handcrafted candlesticks from Wills and Prior add ambiance to the table. Even if Pamela’s not having a formal sit-down dinner, she still likes to have them out.


Hit up the Slow Food Market to grab the tastiest, local essentials - bread from Downie Street Bakery, cheese from Monforte Dairy AND premade shortcrust from Perfect Pastry (because Pamela loves making pie in the fall but she's never made a piecrust and doesn't plan to learn anytime soon 😉)


Enjoy Pamela's #StratfordStyle. What are your Stratford style faves?
