Time to Register for Scarecrow Contest


The Downtown Scarecrow Festival is celebrating its 10th Anniversary! Businesses, organizations and interested individuals are invited to create a family friendly Scarecrow for display in Downtown Manchester during the Annual Downtown Scarecrow Festival. The Scarecrows will be on display from October 13 thru October 27.

First, Second and Third Place prizes will be awarded in both the People’s Choice and Facebook Favorites categories.

Approximately 30 and 35 scarecrows will be on display, enlivening the Downtown and drawing visitors from around the region to stroll Main Street, take photos, discover our great businesses and enjoy the special ambience created by the Festival. Each year organizers are astonished by the ever more imaginative Scarecrow creations. Past scarecrows have included the movie character Grut, fanciful fairies, ET’s bike ride, a recycled scarecrow called “Hawking” and more. What will imaginative minds create this year?

Scarecrow Artists must register to participate. Scarecrows are to be installed by the artists in assigned locations between October 10 and October 13.

To obtain a registration form and contest guidelines contact the Downtown Manchester Special Services District at 860 645-2101 or via email at dmssd@manchesterct.gov
Scarecrow registrations will be accepted until October 3.

The Scarecrow Festival is sponsored by the Downtown Manchester Special Services District with support from Crimson Art Box.
