Scarecrow Festival
Scarecrow Festival

Kick off Fall at the annual Scarecrow Festival, presented by the Shawnee Downtown Partnership, at City Hall on Saturday, October 7 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

This free family-friendly event has something for everyone including scarecrow making, pumpkin decorating, a Farmers’ Market and seasonal displays. Supplies and decorations will be provided at no cost.

Downtown Shawnee will be transformed as businesses and merchants participate in a scarecrow contest. Come and check out all of the creative displays along Johnson Drive and in front of City Hall.

For you chefs out there, showcase your skills in the baking contest. We’ll have categories for pumpkin pie, fruit pie and pumpkin bread. Winners will receive a $50 prize. Samples of the delectable desserts will be available to buy after the contest.
