Event Details

Join generations of visitors who flock to the annual St. Charles Scarecrow Fest every year! 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 100+ hand-crafted scarecrows. Visitors view and vote for their favorite in each of five 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.”
