Scarecrows in the Village
September 11 - October 31
Celebrating 44 years of Scarecrows in the Village
An autumn tradition continues starting September 11! For eight fun-filled weeks, over 100 scarecrows line the brick pathways of our autumn-tinted Village. Some are inspired by famous characters, some are humorous, some are scary – but all of them are carefully handmade by Philly-area residents and organizations. The display is free and on view every day through October 31. Guests are invited to vote on their favorite scarecrows and the creators of the winning scarecrows receive prizes.
Scarecrow Kickoff Weekend
Kick off the scarecrow display on Saturday & Sunday, September 16 & 17 from 11 a.m. – 5 p.m. with family fun, outdoor treats, and scarecrow workshops!
Check back later for 2023 registration information
