Scarecrow Festival at Lake Julian Park

Though apple picking, leaf peeping, and pumpkin spice in everything define the autumn season for many in the North Carolina mountains, scarecrows are a notable symbol of farms and the fall harvest in Buncombe County. The annual Scarecrow Festival returns to Lake Julian Park in Oct. 23–Nov. 1. Buncombe County residents are invited to construct scarecrows as an individual, family, group, school, business, club, or organization. There is no cost to enter.

To vote for your favorite scarecrow, visit Buncombe County Recreation Services on Facebook and Instagram by Oct. 28.
