Shelton Day - Howe Avenue

How Avenue on Shelton Day

Shelton Day is held on the first Sunday in October along Howe Avenue in Shelton. 

Shelton Day was founded and first organized by the Shelton Business District Association in the mid 1980’s as a small street fair. Their goal was to bring people into downtown Shelton and introduce them to the business community. It has now grown into a citywide festival and celebration and is sponsored and run by the Derby/Shelton Rotary Club on the first Sunday in October.  All proceeds received from Shelton Day are put back into the community, in the way of Scholarships for High School students in Derby and Shelton as well as assorted other community projects operated by the Club.
