The Scarecrow Festival is run by the Downtown Event Planners a non-profit 501 3(c) in Michigan. We are a dedicated group of resident and business volunteers who want to provide a family-oriented, fun event during the fall season. We annually donate proceeds (directly or indirectly) to many local charities and non-profit organizations. This event is not run by the City of Trenton, nor does it use taxpayer funds. We raise money to give it away to charities and non-profits in our community. We welcome businesses and residents of all kinds to join us.

The following have been recipients from the Scarecrow Festival during our 15 years of fall fun! Trenton Rotary, various local animal rescue organizations, DYPAC, Riverview Firefighters charities, Girl Scout Troop 42285, Trenton, Girl Scout Troop 224, Trenton, Girl Scout Troop 3012 Trenton, Girl Scout Troop 1286 Riverview, Mc Carty Cancer Foundation, St. Jude’s, the Muscular Dystrophy Foundation,Trenton Blades Hockey Mites.
