Scarecrow Village at the Truro Harvest Festival will be a fun and unique way to bring residents and visitors to Downtown Truro! 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 17th 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 Monday, November 1, 2021. 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.
