The annual event was founded and first organized in the 1980s by the Shelton Business District Association 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 is sponsored and run by the Derby/Shelton Rotary Club on the first Sunday in October.
All proceeds from Shelton Day are put back into the community through scholarships for high school students in Shelton and Derby, as well as other community projects operated by the Rotary Club.
