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 and assorted other community projects operated by the Club.
The Derby-Shelton Rotary Club would like to thank all our vendors for their participation in Shelton Day 2017. Because of your continued support this annual event has become an overwhelming success. Shelton Day has become a cornerstone event for the City of Shelton to show thousands of people how Shelton has changed and grown in the downtown area. This brings together the entire community for a day of fun, entertainment and education. Also you can be proud that any monies from this event go to help local non-profits agencies that provide service to many families and children throughout Shelton.
