Free times tickets for this event will be available on its website on Friday, October 1, 2021, and are recommended to ensure entry into the gardens as capacity is limited.

Interested in creating your own scarecrow? Each year, talented people from throughout the community and surrounding region create amazing scarecrows made from recycled materials to showcase throughout the gardens. Whether submitted individually, by family, or by groups representing businesses, schools, organizations, or churches, all scarecrow designs are always innovative, inspiring, and environmentally friendly. As always, participation is FREE! Online registration for the scarecrow contest is available on the Shangri La Gardens’ website.

This year, voting will be open to not only visitors but to those of you at home! All votes will be cast electronically on our website and winners will be announced during Autumn Fair on November 6 at 2 p.m. on Facebook Live! Names of winners, as well as images from the contest, will also be posted on the Shangri La Gardens’ website.
