The eclectic scarecrows hanging around—figuratively and literally—at Peddler’s Village are not your typical straw concoctions “off to the see the wizard.” Instead, they are most wonderfully creative works of art that have participants vying for over $5,000 in cash prizes for the Village’s 32nd annual Scarecrow Competition and Display. If you have not been, it’s an entertaining way to spend a fall afternoon in beautiful Bucks County with friends or family. The competition runs through Sunday, October 24th.

Traditional/Whirligig
A combination of two old favorites! Pay homage to the scarecrows that have been “scaring crows” from the farmer’s fields and gardens for centuries. You may choose to add parts that move or make noise when the wind gusts to make it a true whirligig—either way your scarecrow has it’s work cut out for it here in the Village.

Group Scarecrow
Make your scarecrow a group project—school, church, office, club, scout troop, neighborhood, etc. Put your creative thinking caps on and conjure up a winner!

Quite the Character Scarecrow
Open a world of possibilities as you create a scarecrow interpretation of your favorite television character – human, animal or animated!

Kids Only! Scarecrow
Kids 12 and under can enter and should do the majority of creation themselves in a category that gives kids the opportunity to compete with their peers.
