Join Us

The Scarecrow Festival is always the 1st weekend in October

  • The Festival is organized and run year-round by the non-profit Downtown Event Planners, a small group of business owners or residents in Trenton Michgan
  • No taxpayer funds are used for this event – we raise our own money and donate it back to the communities in which we live and work
  • The Festival gives donations to charities and non-profits that help volunteer for the event or are selected for a donation.
  • None of the volunteers or the Downtown Event Planners are paid, nor do they receive monetary gifts for working the Festival. 100% volunteer-driven
  • We are dedicated to being a family-friendly event. We encourage every member of YOUR family to join us and get involved in one of our events or contests or as a spectator. The more the merrier
  • Free Festival – no entry fee, free entertainment on the bandstage, free parking and something for everyone.
  • SUPPORT LOCAL – Local businesses, local residents local non-profits and charities. The gift of giving starts right here in your backyard.

We are always looking for motivated, community-oriented businesses, arts and crafters, entertainers and non-profits to join the growing number of annual Scarecrow Festival participants.
