It's time to purchase a scarecrow kit and participate in New Canaan's 4th Annual Scarecrow Fest Competition! This event is open to families, New Canaan-based businesses, organizations and clubs while supplies last. Sales end MONDAY, OCTOBER 5th! Be sure to get your kit today to be part of the judging competition.
Kits will be available for pick up at Northeast Weed and Duryea (21 Grove Street) on Saturday, September 26 from 10am – 1pm. If you are unable to pick up your Scarecrow on September 26th, or can not make arrangements for someone to pick up on your behalf, kits will be available for pick up until October 9th at a home in town. Please note: NO REFUNDS on purchases.
Entrants are responsible for delivering the completed scarecrow in front of Bow Tie Cinema Playhouse on Elm Street on one of two mornings during the week of OCTOBER 12th (more details TBD). ABSOLUTELY NO SCARECROWS WILL BE ACCEPTED OUTSIDE THIS DESIGNATED TIMEFRAME. If you are unable to drop off during these times, consider partnering with a friend who is participating to arrange for them to drop your scarecrow. Or please let us know in advance and we will do our best to arrange for a drop off.
Scarecrows will be hung on New Canaan downtown lamp posts through October 31st. Winners will be announced on the Young Women’s League & Chamber’s websites.
Please review the Entry Form for additional information.
