Unique crafts, delicious baked goods, creative gifts, popular vendors … there’s something to catch everyone’s eye at the Great Akron Scarecrow Festival.

Make your first stop the Nature’s Harvest store that features hundreds of baked goods, crafts and fall decorating items made by Friendship & Service Club members.  Popular items sell out quickly, so get there early!

Don’t forget the scarecrow auction that starts at 2:30 p.m.  All scarecrows entered in the decorating contest will be up for bidding, so you can take the fun home with you.

Vendor Information


Vendor registration is now open for the 2020 festival. We are currently planning for a Scarecrow Festival and vendor setups similar to past years.  We will monitor State of Iowa health requirements and social distancing recommendations and make adjustments as needed as we get closer to festival date.  We will communicate with everyone via email and social media as decisions are made. Please send in registration forms with payment to reserve your spot as normal.
