The WDSTK Scarecrow Invasion takes place in Downtown Woodstock from October 1st through the 31st. This year we have over 175 – making it one of the biggest scarecrow events in the southeast.
The Woodstock Visitors Center hosts the contest and even produces a Scarecrow Invasion scavenger hunt. Click here for the scavenger hunt.
. The visitors center is also turning its art gallery into an INVADE WDSTK Photo Booth.
The public gets to vote for their favorite scarecrow in the event. Voting takes place at the visitors center located at 8588 Main Street and open Monday to Saturday 10 am to 5 pm. Just drop by any time during the month of October to vote for the scarecrow that you like the best. The votes are $1 each, and businesses with scarecrows may have voting set up in their store for their scarecrow. The winner will receive bragging rights and an awesome trophy.
The proceeds from the Scarecrow Invasion will be donated to INSeason. This organization is the design committee for IN WDSTK. They create and implement great design initiatives for the Downtown Woodstock community. You might know them from their beautiful landscaping and holiday decor along Main Street. The money raised from this event will help in the further beautification of Downtown Woodstock
