Many say that the first day of spring is March 20th, but in Stratford, spring starts with the Annual Swan Parade Celebrations.
Join us for a weekend of family fun throughout Stratford culminating with the parade taking place on Sunday, April 7, 2019 at 2 pm of the official ambassadors, the swans, marching from their winter quarters to the Avon River.
Throughout the weekend, search out decorated topiary swans for a chance to win prizes. Join a nature walk to learn more about the life of the swans and hop aboard free horse-drawn carriage tours. Street performers entertain while our swan mascot poses for photos. Events are presented by Stratford Tourism partners, Stratford City Centre BIA, City Staff and the Civic Beautification & Environmental Awareness Committee.
