Meaford Scarecrow Invasion
Friday, September 30, 2016 - Sunday, October 16, 2016
The “Invasion of Scarecrows” begins in mid September through to mid October. More than 250 scarecrows will be found in the downtown area alone – dangling sassily from downtown lamp posts, hiding in bushes and trees, lounging happily on benches, peeking out from behind cornstalks and resting comfortably on porches and verandahs. They frolic everywhere! The main street (Sykes St.), and harbour area, are particularly alive with scarecrows during this time. This year’s decorating theme is “Scarecrows Celebrate the Year of Sport”.
Friday, September 30, 2016 – Scarecrows Celebrate 20 Years with Music
Get ready to celebrate 20 years of the Meaford Scarecrow Invasion and Family Festival. We are going to celebrate with music! Join us on September 30th for the Family Festival and Parade starting at 6 pm. The Scarecrows will start invading in early September and we hear they are a jolly bunch with songs and instruments set to bring joy to all. Special events are planned throughout the year so visit this site often.
Don’t forget to visit the Meaford Farmer’s Market that evening at the Family Festival with more than a dozen local vendors selling high quality produce and meat, as well as arts and crafts and scrumptious baked goods.
