If you’re looking to be dazzled by superior theatrics and palette-wowing gastronomy in an enclave of cultured, old-world charm – Stratford, Ontario has it all.

Ranked as one of Canada’s top-ten daytrip destinations, Stratford is a favourite among theatre-goers, offering the utmost in entertainment, food, shopping, antiquing and scenic tours, nearly all within walking distance.

Just steps from Vintage’s luxury, boutique Parlour Hotel, you’ll find an incredible lineup of entertainment at Stratford’s famous vaudeville-style Avon Theatre. Simply sit back and relax in the theatre’s old-world charm and let yourself slip into another world.

The Avon theatre dates back to 1901 and was purchased by the Festival in 1963. Extensive renovations followed, including a three-story addition, with great care taken to preserve the theatre’s original charm. Today, the Avon Theatre boasts to-die-for architectural details, an awe-inspiring chandelier, and 1,000 seats designed with the best stage visibility and comfort in mind. Accessible seating is also available in the theatre’s orchestra section.

This season, plays you can enjoy at the Avon Theatre include Treasure IslandThe School for Scandal, and HMS Pinafore.
