Sarah, one of our readers, sent us this information about one of her favourite Ontario villages - If you live in Elgin County, I hope you didn't miss the Rosy Rhubarb Festival which is held in Shedden each June. This year it was on June, 11, 12 & 13 2010.
It is always great fun with yard sales the length and breadth of Highway 3, so you can shop even before you reach Shedden.
Once you get to the village for the Rhubarb Festival, there are week-end long activities at the "Keystone Complex" and such things as vendors selling their wares, and the pie baking contest - Rhubarb Pie, of course! There are also contests for the "Largest Rhubarb Leaf" and for the "Longest Stalk" - all in the spirit of good fun!
Shedden is located at the intersection of Highway 3 and Union Road, west of St Thomas.Thanks for the info - Shedden is set in a lovely part of Elgin County, not far from Lake Erie
