Meaford Scarecrow Invasion

The Invasion

The “Invasion of Scarecrows” begins in mid September through to mid October. More than 250 scarecrows will be found in the downtown area alone – dangling sassily from downtown lamp posts, hiding in bushes and trees, lounging happily on benches, peeking out from behind cornstalks and resting comfortably on porches and verandahs. They frolic everywhere! The main street (Sykes St.), and harbour area, are particularly alive with scarecrows during this time. This year’s decorating theme is “Scarecrows Celebrate the Year of Sport”.

See our interactive tour of some of the scarecrow displays throughout the town.

Come early and check out our Business Competition Winners (though we see all participants as winners!) See the displays in store windows and at Agribusinesses all around Meaford. They are different every year.

6:00 PM – Scarecrow Parade

Be on the main street as this popular parade winds its way down Sykes St., past The Big Apple, to our beautiful harbour. This parade has SO many scarecrows in SO many costumes doing SO many things. It is like no other.

6:30 PM – Family Festival

Families love this ever popular event. There are activities and surprises and fun for all ages. And it’s FREE! Come see for yourself. Refreshments are available for purchase by local service clubs to support community projects.

Don’t forget to visit the Meaford Farmer’s Market that evening at the Family Festival with more than a dozen local vendors selling high quality produce and meat, as well as arts and crafts and scrumptious baked goods.

    It's that time of year again! The apple blossoms are out in all their glory. A great time to walk the trails or visit Irish Mountain Lookout to appreciate the view!
