Scarecrow Fest


October 1 – 31, 2022


The scarecrows are coming! The scarecrows are coming!

Every fall, businesses throughout Downtown Fredericksburg compete in the annual Scarecrow Fest, a themed scarecrow contest. Businesses compete in four categories: best business theme, funniest, historic and spookiest.

Come downtown to see all the scarecrows that have taken over FXBG and then vote for your favorites below.

Stop by the Visitor Center (706 Caroline St) to pick up a scarecrow map and ballot.
