The second annual Savour Shelburne will take place on downtown Main Street in Shelburne, on Friday, September 29th from 5 – 9 p.m. and Saturday, September 30 from 10 am-2 pm.

Savour Shelburne celebrates Culture Days Weekend, and organizing member Sohayla Smith says it “offers a variety of hands-on participation-focused activities and experiences for the community to enjoy for free.”

With a variety of events and businesses participating in Savour Shelburne, the concept is to “encourage the public to discover and explore arts and culture through hands-on experiences, giving them a behind-the-scenes understanding of the inner world of the arts and culture being showcased,” says Ms. Smith.

In its seventh season nationally, hundreds of Canadian towns will be celebrating arts and culture across the country this week with free hands-on activities and grassroots entertainment.

The Town of Orangeville, for instance, is celebrating with a free gala evening of entertainment on Thursday, September 28 at the Opera House on Broadway. Reserve your free seats at 519-941-0440 ext. 2244.

Local organizers in Shelburne are working hard to bring a wide range of events to the community in celebration of area artists, creators, food and beverage entrepreneurs and performers.

It was Sharon Grant, who brought the idea to the Shelburne Business Improvement Association (BIA) after hearing about the event at an Economic Committee meeting last year.

Those who came out for the inaugural event last September were very enthusiastic with what the Culture Days Committee had planned – enjoying free tastes of food and beverages, as well as music and art at many locations.
