The Festival always encourages residents and businesses to build their own custom scarecrows, and we stand ready to help. Throughout the year, we sponsor special workshops to help you design new scarecrows or rehab old ones.

Thank you to all the residents and businesses that participated in the 2016 workshops. We look forward to the next year.


Want a chance to have your Scarecrow creation recognized? Just be sure to register it by September 12 so we know about it. Prizes are given out in a variety of categories, and cash awards are provided to best of show in four categories: student, individual, business and club/organization.


We’re always looking for more individuals to help keep this Festival great. Opportunities abound—from helping stage our fun events to patrolling the scarecrow displays in October to building and maintaining these fanciful creations. Let us know if you’d like to help, and we’ll be in touch.


Are you a business with no time to create your own crow? Don’t worry. The Festival maintains a portfolio of fun ideas that you can rent for the month of October. It’s a great way to participate and your rental helps fund local school art program.


Be a friend. It’s not easy to keep this Festival strong, but you can make a tax-deductible contribution to help keep this great non-profit humming along. Check out how you can make a difference.


With a variety of sponsorship opportunities, the Festival provides businesses with the opportunity to be connected with a fantastic community effort and to amplify its own story. Depending on your sponsorship level, the Festival uses its considerable social and physical media reach to give your business added visibility—all while you’re supporting a great cause.
