Scarecrow Harvest
Classroom-Award-Winners-2018




When: Saturday, October 5, 2019

 

The Annual Scarecrow Harvest Event is a time when our community comes alive with colorful and creative life-size scarecrows.  Accredited K-5 schools design and create over 120 scarecrows each year which are displayed throughout downtown Alpharetta.  In addition to the students, we invite businesses, non-profit organizations, civic groups, neighborhoods, families and individuals to design and display their own scarecrows. Anyone is welcome to create a scarecrow and join the fun!

For more information email Claire Thurber cthurber@alpharetta.ga.us or 678.297.6000
This goal of this family-friendly fall festival is to offer fun activities for children in Alpharetta.


Sponsors & Partners:

Each City of Alpharetta special event has a main focus, and the non-profit partners who have on-site presence at the event will have a mission that aligns with the main focus of the City of Alpharetta special event. For example, if the event’s main focus is music, all partners’ mission and focus will be related to music. If an organization does not fit the main focus of the event, but wants to have onsite presence at the event, their option would be to become a sponsor of the event.

What?
