SpringWorks’ programming spans the seasons, providing a safe place for local, regional, national and international artists to showcase their works and an opportunity for audiences to experience new and diverse work in their own community.

SpringWorks’ intent is to enable meeting places for rural & urban voices from far & near to tell their stories.

Stratford Summer Music

Stratford Summer Music stages an annual summer music festival of diverse musical experiences of superior quality, to celebrate music and to enhance the reputation of the Stratford region as an exceptional home for all the arts.

Stratford Summer Music, an annual multi-week music festival that presents multiple events featuring 100+ artists, is set in indoor and outdoor venues throughout downtown Stratford, Ontario.

With an artistic vision to produce, to the highest standards possible, an annual program of diverse and enriching musical performances by local, provincial, national and international artists and to provide the widest possible range of musical genres on our stages, Stratford Summer Music exposes audiences to a standard of musical excellence difficult to find outside large urban centres.
