Welcome to the official website of Windsor, Connecticut's Shad Derby.
 

Welcome to the official website of
Windsor, Connecticut's Shad Derby.

The Shad Derby is a long-standing Windsor tradition. There are many activities sponsored by civic organizations in Windsor. Shad Derby culminates with the highly anticipated parade and festival on the green, sponsored by Windsor Jaycees. The tradition began with an annual fishing tournament sponsored by the Windsor Rod and Gun Club. In the years that followed, more activities were added. The Windsor Lions Club runs the Spring Arts and Crafts Festival.
 

Thank you!



Thank you for making Shad Derby 2014 a great year!
A special thanks to WDRC-FM 102.9 and to Back East Brewery.

And of course a world of thanks to our sponsors without whom the great events we have would not be possible.
We'd also like to thank Get Baked Bakery, Bear's Smokehouse BBQ, and Buffalo Wild Wings for their great eating contests.

Pictures of the day are posted in the Gallery and on our Flickr account.

We look forward to seeing you all on the green again next year!
