Art's Nursery Scarecrow Festival 2016
Come see and take pictures with over 60 scarecrows! This fun, family friendly event begins September 24th with our kick-off party. Make your own scarecrow at our DIY Build-A-Crow station. Have a hay ride. Buy a pumpkin. Take part in kids crafts and activities. Listen to a great line-up of guest speakers. Shop from our craft vendors and take advantage of many in-store sales and specials.
If you can't make it in that day, the scarecrows will be on display until Halloween!
Supporting Local Community Groups
Part proceeds from the Art's Nursery Scarecrow Event will go to support three awesome local organizations and charieties:
An amazing group of volunteers who travel to seniors facilities and palliative care units performing and brightening the days of the patients.
Supporting day programs and housing for people with developmental challenges

Bring in your old clothes and decorating accessories and build your own scarecrow at our Build-A-Crow Station! Last year, over 200 scarecrows were born at Arts Nursery! It's a fun activity, with a minimum donation of $10, made to any one or all of our three charities. Bring the kids, bring the friends and make your own scarecrow for the Thanksgiving and Halloween!
Your donation provides a wooden frame, straw and burlap head as well as our expert scarecrow building advice and the tools and equipment necessary. Please bring your own old clothes and accessories if you intend to build-a-crow.
