The Live Oaks that line our streets provide plenty of classic charm, but our Uptown district is where visitors and locals alike come to learn, have fun, enjoy friends, and celebrate the seasons. USA stages events that draw people together in our historic center, especially in the fall for our co-sponsorship of the Shelby Fall Liver Mush Expo to celebrate one of the more unusual local food traditions of the area.
You can hear Grammy winning artists and more in our beautifully restored Don Gibson Theatre, named for the native son who wrote many famed hits, such as “I Can’t Stop Loving You.” Soon you can tour The Earl Scruggs Center: Songs and Stories of the American South located on Court Square. And your eyes can be excited with exciting shows in public and private galleries around Uptown Shelby.
