Shedden, Ontario

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, Ontario, on the second weekend in June. This year it will be held on Saturday June 11th and Sunday June 12th

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.

You can find more Rhubarb information here Rhubarb!

Thanks for the info - Shedden is set in a lovely part of Elgin County, not far from Lake Erie

We loved the Rosie Rhubarb Festival!
by: Doreen & Edna

A couple of years ago we were visiting Elgin County and stumbled upon the Rosy Rhubarb Festival in Shedden - what a wonderful day we had! There was entertainment at the Keystone Complex, village-wide garage sales, even wagon rides from the complex back to our car! There were pies for sale and free Rhubarb fruit juice available from the kind people at the Church on the main street. We haven't been able to back to Shedden since then but we would love to be there for the Rosie Rhubarb Festival this year.
