    Scarecrow Fest Returns To St. Charles This Weekend

    The 36th annual Scarecrow Festival, presented by AAA, returns this weekend, October 8-10, to provide entertainment for all to enjoy in downtown St. Charles.

    Scarecrow contest entries will be on display beginning at 12 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 8. All Scarecrow Festival visitors can vote in the Scarecrow contest to help decide the winners in four categories: Business, Mega/Mechanical, Non-Profits and Schools, and Individuals.

    St. Charles Business Alliance Executive Director Jenna Sawicki said it will be a great weekend for locals and visitors alike to come out to Scarecrow Fest.

    “This year, we’ve worked hard on continuing the success of Scarecrow Fest and seeing how we can make it a benefit for all to enjoy,” Sawicki said. “As for the contest, I can’t wait to see what our contestants are bringing to downtown St Charles.”

    The Family Zone, sponsored by St. Charles Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep & Ram, is a new addition to the Scarecrow Festival and will replace the carnival with live entertainment and family activities throughout the weekend.  It will also feature a professional pumpkin carver, giant bubble artist, performances by local dance groups, face painting, a balloon artist and more.
