Cambria Scarecrow Festival
Presented by The Cambria Historical Society
Over 350 of the most artistic, creative and lively scarecrows will line the streets of Cambria for the entire month of October
Thirty scarecrows kicked off the first Cambria Scarecrow Festival in 2009. What those 30 scarecrows didn’t know then, was that they were initiating one of the most artful and unique scarecrow festivals in the US–and right here on the Central Coast. Over 350 scarecrows lined Cambria’s business district in 2012. Our reputation has spread across the country and the event now brings thousands of visitors to Cambria and the Central Coast in October providing a boost to the local economy. The 2012 Festival was even mentioned in the LA Times, Chicago Tribune, Huffington Post and on ABCNews.com.
While Cambria is a perfect year-round escape, many believe that October is the best time of all. October’s warm sun brightens our seaside village. It sparks the magic of hundreds of unique scarecrows displayed throughout Cambria’s East and West Villages and along Moonstone Beach Drive.
From October 1-31 let the Cambria Scarecrow Festival amuse you while you visit our unique business district filled with boutiques, restaurants, and wine and beer tasting too. Then stroll our unspoiled beaches or hike the many trails that wrap their way from the beach into the pines.
But the word is out. So make your Cambria hotel reservation soon.
