The Town of Shelburne is honoured to be the recipient of the Community Arts & Culture Award for 2018! It was fantastic to share our Arts initiatives at the Gala in Halifax.

The Town of Shelburne may be small, with a population of 1,743, but it is a hive of culture and arts located along Nova Scotia’s South Shore.  Some of the 2018 projects include a sculpture series of 2 ft. people in various poses, a bust of Town Mascot “Bruce the Moose”,  a mindfulness wood-burned signage installation along our trail system, a Minke whale log carving, an ornamental cemetery gate and a large Mi’kmaq carving. 

In the Spring of 2019, the Town of Shelburne will install an 8 ft. cement Whale Tale, a poetry series that will be painted on sidewalks with rain-activated paint, and a painted wood carving of a mermaid.

For entertainment, the Guild Hall Summer Arts Series features music and performing arts from local artists, community bands, and touring musicians. The Town hosts a yearly Art Day, is home to the Osprey Arts Centre, a creative local Farmer’s/Arts Market, and the Shelburne County Arts Council. Shelburne also has yearly video contests, photography contests, and a large community street dance.
