Cambria’s annual Scarecrow Festival is upon us! If you have yet to experience this incredibly unique annual event, we invite you to join us, this year, in our seaside village as we celebrate one of our most highly anticipated festivals!
Since the Cambria Scarecrow Festival’s inaugural year in 2009, Cambria has fascinated visitors each October with an array of unique and artfully crafted scarecrows, all designed by local Cambrian artists. The scarecrows are displayed throughout the town and resemble popular fictitious characters, realistic children, and more!
To add to the excitement, we have also upgraded how visitors can interact with the scarecrows. For the first time ever, onlookers will be able to use their smart phones or tablets to scan the individual QR codes that will be located on each scarecrow, and gain access to intriguing details about each piece of art. In addition, the QR codes will allow viewers to track their favorite scarecrows, rate them, share them on Facebook, and more!
Finally, all those who vote for their favorite scarecrows will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a two-day getaway in Cambria, which will include wine and cheese tasting, tickets to Hearst Castle’s Grand Room Tour, lodging, delicious meals at local Cambria eateries, and more! Tickets for the raffle are $1 and can be purchased at various locations throughout town.
During the month of October, lodging will become increasingly full, so be sure to reserve your accommodations. This year will be one for the books!
