When Stratford was first settled in 1832, the town and its river were named after the famous Stratford-upon-Avon in England. Stratford’s roots are tied to the railroad, with the community playing the role of an important railway junction for much of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Now home to more than 30,000 residents, tourism and manufacturing are the main pillars of Stratford’s economy.
Stratford is most well-known for its annual Stratford Shakespeare Festival, which was first held in 1953. Each year, thousands of tourists flood the area to see notable celebrities and new theatre productions performed at the four theatres located in the city. Residents also enjoy the Stratford Summer Music Festival, along with many local shops, fine dining, bars, spas, antique stores and many other unique shopping experiences in the downtown area.
