WOODSTOCK, GA (September 19, 2023) – Downtown Woodstock is about to be invaded! By scarecrows, that is. As you drive into Downtown Woodstock from East Main Street during the month of October, you will be welcomed by more than 230 scarecrows.

The 2023 WDSTK Scarecrow Invasion features amazing scarecrow designs from local businesses, nonprofits, and individuals. The Scarecrow Invasion officially begins on October 2nd and will be displayed throughout the month. The event brings thousands of people to Downtown Woodstock during the month of October, encouraging both locals and visitors to the area.

This year will feature a new layout for the scarecrow displays, with all Main Street locations situated north of Arnold Mill, and the majority of displays visible within the Park City Center and Northside Hospital-Cherokee Amphitheater. With thanks to the Woodstock Parks and Rec Department, who have allowed the majority of scarecrows to now be on display within the Park and Amphitheater; this change will allow visitors to more safely walk and admire the designs.

Throughout the month of October, the public can also vote for their favorite Scarecrow at the Woodstock Visitors Center, located at 8588 Main Street, and open weekly Monday through Saturday 10am-5pm. A $1 donation equals one vote. All proceeds benefit INSeason, the design committee for IN WDSTK, and will be dedicated to Downtown Woodstock beautification projects. The winners of the Scarecrow Invasion contest receive bragging rights, and an awesome trophy.

Another popular part of the event is the Woodstock Scarecrow Invasion Scavenger Hunt, which features ten clues related to specific scarecrows scattered throughout the area. Participants set out to find the correct scarecrows aligned with the associated clues. The Scavenger Hunt is a fun, free activity and both adult and child friendly. The clue sheets are available at the Woodstock Visitors Center, beginning Friday, October 6th. When participants have solved all ten clues, they can turn in results to the Visitors Center to earn a special prize. This is a fun way to deepen the experience and explore all of the scarecrows on display at the Woodstock Scarecrow Invasion.
