The Mabee Farm Scarecrow Show

As the warm weather wanes and seasons change, we at the Mabee Farm want to see one more splash of color in our fields. We hope to decorate our farm with a festive flock of scarecrows, but we need your help to make it happen! Families, business and community groups of all descriptions are invited to make their own scarecrow for display at our site. We’ll provide the framing materials, and the rest is up to you. It’s the perfect socially-distant activity for this fall!
Registration is $5 and runs through October 24. Framing materials can be picked up on that day for optional construction at home.
Participants can choose to build their scarecrow at the Mabee Farm on October 30 or 31 from 10am to 4pm. All entrees must be received by 4pm on October 31st.
Scarecrows will be on display From November 1st through November 14th.
a. Scarecrows can be made of any materials you choose, but must be constructed to
withstand the elements.
B. No entry will be accepted that is offensive or upsetting. No political statements. We reserve the right to remove any entry that does not meet these standards.
C. Participants name and scarecrow bio will be displayed with their scarecrow
D. Framing material will be designed around a full size (approx 5’6’’) scarecrow
Scarecrows will be taken down on Saturday, November 14 between 2pm and 4pm. Participants are welcome to collect their scarecrow at that time, arrange for a later pick up, or leave them for disposal.
