Founded by Frederick Sovereen, who arrived in the area around 1812, the town was initially named Sovereen’s Corners, then Fredericksburg. In 1856, the name of the post office was changed to Delhi and the town boasts a diverse makeup, bringing many cultures and heritages together to strengthen the community.

Unique to Delhi is the Ontario Tobacco Museum & Heritage Centre which preserves the rich history of the tobacco industry. Delhi is home to the beautifully restored theatre known as the Backstage Capitol. It hosts music and other entertainment on an ongoing basis. German, Belgian, Hungarian and Polish halls reflect the European heritage and often feature special events throughout the year. Many stores and businesses are locally owned and operated and offer exceptional customer service and locally grown fruits and vegetables.

Annual events include the Strawberry Festival (June) and Le Tour de Norfolk (July) which hosts over 800 cyclists enjoying organized routes throughout the Norfolk County countryside. Harvest Festival (September) features a variety of attractions and often includes a car show, midway, parade, food and entertainment.


Delhi has a lot to offer – as a number of well-established business have been already discovered. The former tobacco auction building has been converted to a potato packing plant. Delhi is also home to Naturally Norfolk, an individual quick freeze facility for processing local fruit and vegetables. With more than 4,000 people, Delhi combines charmingly rural environment with exceptionally favourable location. The Delhi Community Health Centre also serves the local community.
