Our Mission

Through the creation and annual public display of scarecrows, the Cambria Scarecrow Festival, Inc. provides a sustainable, inclusive, collaborative set of programs to encourage artistic creativity and visibility to the communities of Cambria and San Simeon.

History of the Festival

Now in its ninth year, the Cambria Scarecrow Festival has grown into a community-wide event with hundreds of scarecrows bowling, bathing, painting, pedaling, fishing and flying through Cambria, San Simeon and Harmony.

The Festival made its first appearance in 2009 with just thirty scarecrows. Since then, thanks to the ingenuity and hard work of local students, residents, and businesses, the numbers have grown into the hundreds. The Festival has been featured in places as varied as the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and Huffington Post.
