Our annual Shakespeare on the River Festival runs each April/May in Stratford, Australia. The festival has created an enduring Arts legacy for Stratford that showcases community, professional theatre and the broader Arts scene.

The Festival has grown to include over twenty different events being performed over a two-and-a-half week period. The people of Stratford, The Festival management team, the best artists from around the region, and guest Melbourne and Sydney based professional companies will take you on a culturally engaging journey back in time.
