Our beautiful Victorian city has a rich past with numerous historic places in Stratford to explore. But the holiday season is when we truly get to shine, blending the old and the new. The team at A+ Appliance created a list of holiday events in Stratford that combines tradition with celebration for all to enjoy.
Best Holiday Events in Stratford: Where Past Meets Present
Stratford’s rich history is on every turn and Stratford Christmas events integrate it seamlessly with fun and original activities. You’ll find no shortage of things to do in Stratford Ontario this December!
A Very Merry Mini Markets!
Our list of holiday events in Stratford includes a way to cross some names off your gift list. Market Square comes alive the first two weekends in December with Stratford-area vendors and artisans. While you shop-local, the kids can enjoy a ride on the carousel and meet Santa while roving Victorian carolers keep holiday spirits high!
