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.)

After the successful launch of CDX in February of 2013, CDX made its mark as the ‘largest dairy stage' in Canada and second largest in North America, next to the World Dairy Expo.

The Canadian Dairy XPO (CDX) is a professional tradeshow for dairy producers and their families to see the latest in innovation and be educated on producing safe nutritious dairy products to you, the consumer. CDX is held at the Stratford Rotary Complex, in Perth County - which has the highest concentration of dairy farms in Canada. When farmers do well, so do their communities!


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.”
