Stevensville Scarecrow Festival

The Stevensville Scarecrow Festival is SASS’s flagship public art event and occurs annually on the First Friday in October.

The event is open to the public — individuals, organizations, businesses, groups, etc — and involves the production of sculptures loosely based on the theme of scarecrows,crows, fall, etc.

The main event occurs on First Friday and extends for a week.  On Friday night and Saturday morning votes are cast by the public for the 3 “Peoples’ Choice” awards of $200, $100, and $50.  There are also 2 $50 awards for “Artistic Merit” based on the judgement of three designated members or guests of SASS.

Check out the gallery of past scarecrows in the Gallery.  You can also see a video of the 2011 event on Facebook at “Stevensville Scarecrow Festival”
