The Wellesley Township Fall Fair hosts a community Scarecrow Competition every year from late spring up until Fair time in September. Aside from our annual competition we also have some creative online Scarecrow Challenges and a Scarecrow Scavenger Hunt coming later in summer 2021.

Community members, families, and businesses are invited to create a scarecrow based on the categories outlined in this year’s Competition Guidelines. Participants then submit photos of their scarecrow to be judged in September. Businesses that win receive rosettes, and community members receive a monetary prize based on how they place in the competition.

If you are interested in participating this year, please review a copy of our Competition Guidelines, available to download here: Competition Guidelines.

You can register your scarecrow by emailing wellesleyfallfair.scarecrows@gmail.com, calling 519-807-0448, or by filling out this Google Form: https://forms.gle/xgFuT3rtJU3PnNva8
