 15th Annual Scarecrow Harvest    


Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 this year’s traditional Scarecrow Harvest Festival, held last year in Brooke Street Park, has been cancelled.


We know that each fall, residents and visitors of Alpharetta look forward to seeing the downtown streets decorated with scarecrows made by local students, teachers, businesses, families and civic and faith-based organizations. This sight brings a smile to anyone driving or walking around Alpharetta each year!


We want this tradition to continue despite the unprecedented times we are in and know it can be done safely while bringing much needed joy to our community!


This year, things are different and our schools, teachers and room parents have their hands full so WE NEED YOUR HELP! We are calling all families, neighborhoods, non-profit, civic & faith-based organizations, local businesses, local sports teams and athletic clubs…join in the fun this year and make your own creative scarecrow!



Design and display your scarecrow using your favorite book theme, movie character, TV show, athlete, etc. The scarecrow application process is simple and free, open to EVERYONE and only requires your creativity! The application will go live on August 24th with a deadline of September 10th.

Disclaimer: Scarecrow placement will be determined by the City of Alpharetta and you will be contacted prior to September 22,2020 with your location and all necessary details. Hay will be provided by the city for the first 100 scarecrows. Installation Dates: 9/30/20 – 10/5/20; Removal Date: 11/2/20


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.

This goal of this FREE family-friendly event is to offer offer fun activities for children in Alpharetta.
