It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

"Christmas waves a magic wand over this world, and behold, 
everything is softer and more beautiful."
 ~ Norman Vincint Peale

The town of Shelburne welcomes you to come and spend a day or the whole weekend with them as they celebrate the Christmas season this year.  A full festive line up of events are on tap from November 25 - 28, beginning with the Phil Callen Senior High Basketball Classic which kicks off on Thursday night at 6PM at the High School.

Friday night, Jolly Ol' Santa comes to town with treat bags for the little ones.  The lights on the Christmas Tree will be lit while folks gather 'round for a Christmas Carol sing-along and a "mug up" of hot chocolate and cookies to keep you warm.  End your evening with some more great entertainment at the Osprey Arts Centre with our local basement theatre performance of Noel Coward's 1920's English comedy  "Hay Fever".

On Saturday, start your day with a little Christmas shopping and while you are out and about, don't forget to cast your vote for your favorite themed Christmas tree located throughout town.  The Shelburne Farmer's Market will be open at the Exhibition grounds and from there you can stroll over to the community centre for the Christmas Craft Fair and cross a few more people off your Christmas List with some great handmade crafts.


Step back in time when you purchase a ticket for the Christmas House Tour.  You will get to explore five homes in Shelburne all decked out for Christmas, a church and an Inn. You will be greeted by some of our local Historic Re-enactors as you experience Christmas with a little history!

If you haven't gotten into the Festive Season yet, you surely will as you watch the impressive Parade of Lights as it makes it way through the Town of Shelburne later Saturday night.

Come, be a part of the Magic and experience Christmas in Shelburne!
