The Scarecrow Festival has grown into a community-wide event with hundreds of scarecrows bowling, bathing, painting, pedaling, fishing and flying throughout Cambria and San Simeon. Over the years, the festival has grown into one of the most unique features of hand-crafted folk art in the U.S. 

This year, the festival has been repositioned as a Scarecrow Walk – a way to enjoy the festival in a safe, responsible way with social distancing and wearing of masks. All the scarecrows will be positioned and spaced in specific, well-defined areas to make them easily viewed by parking and walking. The Scarecrow Walk is all outdoors and the scarecrows will be displayed throughout the whole month of October. The festival is following all of the California Department of Public Health guidelines for outdoor museums and galleries.

This year’s theme for the San Simeon walking trail is zombies!
