October in Cambria and San Simeon holds a special appeal! The weather is at its most spectacular and the Annual Scarecrow Festival, named to Travel Channel’s Don’t Miss List, is in full swing. It’s a great time to experience the area at its quirky and creative best. All month long, scarecrows showcase the artistic creativity, whimsical spirit and sense of humor that is Cambria. Hundreds of scarecrows line the streets, shop windows and beach fronts of these coastal communities.
The scarecrows will be positioned and displayed in well-defined areas around town that can be viewed by parking and walking. Scarecrow Walks are unique in that each display is outdoors and they can all be easily enjoyed while maintaining social distancing. Use the Visit Cambria App as a guide through the festival with location details and previews of the scarecrows.
