Getting ready for the 2021 Scarecrow Festival
Greetings Scarecrow Festival Friends,
The Cambria Scarecrow Festival Board is already busy planning the 2021 festival. This will be our 13th annual festival, and we’re starting early enough to tackle any challenges that might come up due to the ongoing Covid precautions. We need lots of help to make it all come together, and I want to encourage you to join us any way you can.
First and foremost, we ask those of you who have participated in the Friends of the Cambria Scarecrow Festival program in the past to please renew your membership. If you aren’t familiar with this opportunity, check it out. Read about the many levels of membership and the benefits of each at cambriascarecrows.com/donate. In addition to businesses, we now have an individual level for those of you who love the scarecrows and want to support our efforts. Donations in any amount make it possible for us to bring this festival to you.
Many Zoom Meetings Coming Up
On March 4, we kick off our strategy sessions with the annual Artist Meeting. Each year, several local artists and veteran scarecrow creators present their ideas and visions for the upcoming festival. In this meeting, we will plan the large, themed displays as well as evaluate suggestions for new and unique individual scarecrows. If you are interested in being apart of this meeting, please email to me at:
Another upcoming get together will be on March 18. This is when Dr. Crow gets started. The Dr. Crow team includes anyone who wants to create new scarecrows, redo old scarecrows, spruce up tired scarecrows, or construct parts of the scarecrow displays. No experience necessary. We have many exciting ways for everyone to participate. Because we are still working under Covid restrictions, we will be helping team members with the things they need to work from home. Hopefully later in the year we will be able to hold small workshops or online how-to’s. If you have always wanted to take part in the scarecrow making process or just want get involved in the festival, this is a great place to start. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We need all of you to help us put together an amazing Scarecrow Festival this year. It is not only important to the business communities of Cambria and San Simeon, but also a way we can come together as a community to have fun. Won’t you join us?
