The Town of Shelburne is located at the intersection of Highways 10 and 89. Like many communities in the region, the Town was first established in 1860 in anticipation of the Toronto, Grey and Bruce Railway that passes through the community. The railway attracted residents and businesses to the area.
Today, Shelburne is a vibrant multi-cultural community, and continues to grow with a number of new residential and commercial developments underway. The Town was the fastest growing community in Canada (2016 Census) and is best known for the Annual Canadian Heritage Music Festival that is held each August. The Town of Shelburne is at the Heart of Trails within the County of Dufferin and boasts 12 parks and over 5.6 Km of trails. Our quaint downtown also offers several unique places to eat and shop.
Grace Tipling Concert Hall is an historic theatre located in Downtown Shelburne. The theatre hosts year-round entertainment and an art gallery.
Sports and recreation opportunities happen throughout the year including hockey, Basketball, baseball, skate Park, soccer, figure skating, Cricket, gymnastics, and Scouts.
