Wallaceburg is an unincorporated community and town located in the municipality of Chatham-Kent in Southern (Southwestern) Ontario, Canada. Originally a small settlement, it was recognized for its significant contribution to the lumber and boat building industries and strategic location along the banks of the scenic Sydenham River.
In more recent years the town was known for its glass making industry. For that reason many people around the country referred to Wallaceburg as the Glass town of Canada." Wallaceburg is home of WAMBO (Wallaceburg Antique Motor and Boat Outing), an annual antique car, boat, bus, and fire truck show that began in 1988.
