Scarecrow Village Registration
September 16 – October 3, 2022
Scarecrow Village at the Truro Harvest Festival is coming back this year! We’re encouraging all organizations in the downtown area to take part, and we will have a team of local judges visiting the scarecrows on Friday, September 16th to award the following titles: Most Creative Scarecrow, Funniest Scarecrow, Best Scarecrow Theme, and Most Elegant Scarecrow.
All registered scarecrows will also be marked on the Scarecrow Village map which will be available online and through a printed brochure. The People’s Choice Scarecrow will be voted on throughout the event with the winner being announced on Tuesday, October 4, 2022. There is also the potential that we will include your scarecrow(s) in one of our Crime Scene Investigation storylines for social media, happening throughout the festival. Scarecrows must be family-friendly and appropriate for display.
Only registered scarecrows created by businesses are eligible for awards. Sponsored scarecrows are not eligible for awards, but will help to enhance the festival atmosphere of Downtown Truro throughout the event.

Scarecrows must be registered by August 31, 2022 to be included in promotional materials for the Truro Harvest Festival.
Scarecrows must be displayed from September 16, 2022 – October 3, 2022.
Businesses are responsible for the care and maintenance of their own scarecrows, if you wish to leave your scarecrow longer than the festival end date you are more than welcome.
Scarecrow judging will take place in the afternoon on Friday, September 16, 2022.
Have fun! We want to see how creative our amazing town can get with the scarecrows!
