For 23 years, the Festival of Scarecrows has invited the community out to see creative scarecrow designs, enjoy fun hayrides, and participate in family friendly activities.

New this year is the Great Chili Cook-Off Contest

Come and sample some homemade recipes and vote on your favorite.

The Arvada Gardeners will be onsite with their fresh produce at the farmers market and the giant pumpkin for the weigh-in.


Portion of the days proceeds benefit Ralston House, thank you for the ongoing support! 

Olde Town Square will come alive this fall with pumpkins and scarecrows of all shapes and sizes for the annual Festival of Scarecrows.  Costume parade, pumpkin decorating, corn maze (bring a non-perishable food item to donate to the Rising Church Food Bank for free entry), check out the giant pumpkins from the Arvada Gardeners, enjoy delicious fall treats, and be sure to vote for your favorite scarecrow – the winners will receive prizes!
