Justin Bieber: Steps to Stardom

This talk tells the story of the Stratford native’s career from those early years - busking in Stratford and performing in local talent shows - to the largest venues and stages in the world.

Stratford Festival: Such Stuff As Dreams…
How did the Stratford Festival go from dream to reality? This talk discusses the plots, the plans, the people and the plays that transformed Stratford from a railway hub to the city that hosts North America’s largest classical repertory theatre company.

Historical Walk
Enjoy a guided walk through our trails system that features 15 story boards that tell the history of Stratford and Perth County. On this walk, which is under a kilometre in length, you will learn about the first inhabitants, the European settlers, industry, the role of rail, war time commitments and government representation - and the role each played. (Weather permitting - we have an inclement weather alternative indoors.)
