Spring Scarecrow Festival

17-27 September 2020

Theme: Frontline 2020 – Resilience and Renewal

This year has been a time of great uncertainty and change. Bushfires, toxic smoke, and the ongoing COVID-19 epidemic have affected us all in many ways.

To celebrate the hard work and resilience of everyday Australians, the theme of Erindale Neighbourhood Garden’s Scarecrow Festival this year is Resilience and Renewal.

This free event provides a great opportunity for schools, community groups, parents, children, grandchildren, or organisations to work together on a fun and creative scarecrow-making project that represents something important to them about this year’s experiences.

Your scarecrow might be a favourite “frontline warrior” – a firefighter, a health care professional or someone you know. Or maybe a scarecrow COVID choir, a scene of your favourite “lock down” hobbies, a scarecrow washing its hands, or even a scarecrow group doing its best with social distancing! Click here for more information and ideas about what you can build.

In keeping with COVID restrictions, this year you’ll be able to view all Scarecrows anytime that suits you for ten days at the Neighbourhood Garden from 17-27 September. There will be a special road-side display for drive-by on Comrie Street on the weekend of 26-27 September.
