Welcome to the cradle of festival theatre: the renowned Stratford Festival, Huron Country Playhouse, Victoria Playhouse, Blythe Festival, Grand Theatre and Chatham's historic Capitol Theatre.

Lakes Huron, St. Clair and Erie provide a wealth of beaches, parks, sporting opportunities and unspoiled nature.

Seasonal delights abound: migrating birds and green pastures of spring, summer market gardeners galore, a blaze of autumn colour and a winter playground.

Our intense agricultural production ranges from the familiar to the exotic. Surprisingly competitive wineries now dot the landscape. We is also home to thousands of Standard Bred horses serving both riding stables and race tracks in the area.

Two major historic events, the War of 1812 and the Escape From Slavery are remembered by museum displays, historic sites, enactments, and conferences. Loyalist setller beginnings are captured in museums, antique shops and country auctions.

Our members cover all of SW Ontario, both geographically and socially, offering country living, city excitement, or central bases to enjoy all aspects of a rewarding vacation.

Set the date now for your opportunity to share our corner of Canada.
