Welcome to Oxford County and Woodstock. If you’re thinking of Woodstock, the Woodstock Music and Art Fair held August 15–18, 1969, featured loads of amazing musicians performing for 3 Days of Peace & Music. No, it’s not that Woodstock. The only similarity besides the name is that the Woodstock Music festival took place on a dairy farm, and Woodstock, Ontario, is the “the Dairy Capital of Canada.”
However, when it comes to fun things to do in Woodstock Ontario, the city holds several events to pay tribute to its bovine histories, such as the annual Dairy Capital Stampede, Cowapolooza, and Cheese Fest, and the Dairy Capital Run.
It is a perfect day or half-day trip from Stratford, Ontario and a great day trip destination from Toronto if you are incorporating shopping at the One-of-a-kind-Antique Mall, purchasing some quality cheese at Gunn’s Hill Artisan Cheese or picking your own fruits and veggies at Thames River Melons.
