The 2020 Scarecrow Harvest Festival will NOT include the traditional street festival from previous years.
Instead, it will feature only the scarecrow displays on city streets.
The scarecrows have been handcrafted by members of the community. They will be installed in downtown Alpharetta between September 28th and October 5th, 2020 — and will remain on display until November 2nd.
