Have you been to St. Charles Scarecrow Fest? Then share photos of your experience!

Scarecrow Fest began in 1985 with a few contest entries in St. Charles, Illinois’ Lincoln Park. It has grown from a small community festival to a nationally recognized festival attracting over 100,000 over three days Columbus Day weekend. For over 30 years, this award-winning festival has brought heartwarming memories to both children and adults, and is a tradition for thousands of families across the Midwest.

The heart and soul of the festival is the Scarecrow Contest, which boasts 150+ hand-crafted scarecrows. Visitors view and vote for their favorite in each of six categories. Both children and adults will find plenty to do all weekend long – which is why so many choose to "make it a weekend" in our charming community. Enjoy live entertainment, a huge arts and crafts show, carnival, and petting zoo – those are just a few highlights! You can even make your own scarecrow to take home. Plus, enjoy plenty of delicious food.

The possibilities are endless. Best of all….admission, parking, trolleys and parking shuttles are all FREE! Come on out and experience why Scarecrow Fest is a four time winner of the "Top 100 Events in North America."
