Fairfield County Trail of Scarecrows
This is the only county-wide scarecrow contest of its kind in the country and this year it’s even bigger than the last – more than 300 scarecrows are lining the streets of 14 participating communities!
And we all know everything is better if it’s a competition. Visitors can vote for their favorite creation in each community and the winner will receive a People’s Choice award, a $50 gift card and bragging rights as the best scarecrow in the Scarecrow Capital of Ohio. More than 800 visitors have voted so far!
This is one of the best socially-distant activities for your whole family to enjoy the crisp air and crunchy leaves this season, just 30 minutes south of Columbus!
Find an interactive map of the Trail of Scarecrows on the Visit Fairfield County website. Visitors can also download the new Visit Fairfield County app to view maps of the scarecrows in each community and participate in challenges. For example, visit at least half of the scarecrows in a single community and be entered to win a grand prize!
The Trail of Scarecrows is just one of the many autumn experiences in Fairfield County, and while you’re in town you can stop at places like Sharp Farms to check out their new corn maze, head to Sam’s Pumpkin Patch to pick a pumpkin or check out the Haunted Farm which is definitely not for the faint of heart!
