Celebrating 44 years of Scarecrows in the Village

An autumn tradition continues starting September 11! For six 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 29. Guests are invited to vote on their favorite scarecrows through October 9 and the creators of the winning scarecrows receive prizes.


The public can vote on their favorite entries from September 11 – October 9. Ballots can be cast through our Peddler’s Village Mobile app (Android | Apple). Paper ballots are available in all shops and restaurants. Please drop your completed submission in ballot boxes located in the Cock ‘n Bull Restaurant, Giggleberry Fair Indoor Family Fun Center, Buttonwood Grill, and Visitor & Event Center.
