DescriptionIncorporated in 1879, Shelburne was named after the Earl of Shelburne, a British statesman whose goal was to end the hostility between Canada and Great Britain as well as Canada and the United States. The Dufferin County community's recreational opportunities include fishing, horseback riding and nature trails for bicycling and walking, including access to the Bruce Trail just east of town. Winter brings opportunities for downhill and cross-country skiing, snowshoeing and snowmobiling.
Country music fans throng to this small rural town in early August for four days of traditional tunes, barbecue and a parade during the Heritage Music Festival.
