Shullsburg Community Development Corporation

The Shullsburg Community Development Corporation (SCDC) was founded to provide leadership and growth to the City of Shullsburg by promoting community development. Membership is open to anyone interested in the betterment of Shullsburg by encouraging new business, improving the quality of life, and promoting tourism. Meetings are held the second Monday of each month at the Centenary United Methodist Church.

Some of our projects include the Shullsburg Visitor Guide, City-wide Garage Sales, Music in the Park, Cheesefest, and A Bit Of Yesteryear Christmas.

Cheesefest is always held the first Saturday in October. It is held on historic Water Street with free entertainment for all ages throughout the day. The day kicks off with breakfast served by the local Fire Department. The antiques, crafts, and flea market booths fill the street. Other activities include the Cheese Curd Eating Contest, Scarecrow Contest, Hay Rides, Trolley Rides, the Taste of Shullsburg Baking Contest, and Raffle. You’ll want to sample the deep fried cheese curds, cheese sandwiches, chili with cheese and, of course, cheesecake!

A Bit Of Yesteryear Christmas, another of our popular events, is always held Thanksgiving Weekend. The Water Street Shops and Restaurants celebrate the beginning of the Holiday Season with festivities throughout the weekend. Water Street is decorated in its holiday finery to put everyone in the Holiday Spirit. Several events are held on Saturday including the Holiday Tour of Homes, Pasty Luncheon, lighted Christmas Parade and the grand finale — Fireworks. Join family and friends for this special event.
