Shelburne Day | Saturday, August 19 | 9-2 | Shelburne Parade Ground
The third Saturday in August is Shelburne Day, when the regular Shelburne Farmers Market vendors are joined by dozens of other local businesses and organizations eager to tell their stories, display their products, talk to their old friends and new friends, and celebrate their importance to the local economy and the fabric of the town.
Shelburne Day was first launched in 2006, building upon the success of the Farmers Market by inviting local businesses, many of them members of SBPA, to set up information tables and share information about their businesses, professional services and the entrepreneurial spirit of the town with a wider audience.
Every year Shelburne Day gets bigger and livelier – this year one of the new participants is the newly reenergized Shelburne Historical Society. They will have an amazing display of images from the town’s past (digitally displayed on a laptop, of course) and there will be walking tours of the village at 1 o’clock.
It’s a day to make a great lunch of local food, from traditional burgers to exotic treats and beverages from fresh-ground coffee to fresh-squeezed lemonade – and of course to enjoy a maple creemee or homemade ice cream. It’s a chance to listen to great local entertainers, while you’re shopping, or while sitting on a bale of hay in the shade. There is fun for kids, meeting animals from Shelburne Farms Children’s Farmyard, making take-home crafts, and getting their faces painted. And for everyone a chance to share the sense of community that makes Vermont and Shelburne special.
