What is the Cambria Scarecrow Festival?

“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 420 scarecrows lined Cambria and San Simeon’s business districts in 2013.

This fall, enjoy a fun and relaxing get-away on the cozy California coast. For the entire month of October, hundreds of artfully crafted scarecrows are displayed throughout the seaside villages of Cambria and San Simeon. It is truly a case of whimsy running rampant.“

Tourists flock to Scarecrows in Cambria, CA

Cambria Nursery Scarecrow

The last of the remaining scarecrows around Cambria are being put into storage.  You might be asking yourself does this mean all Cambria crows fly south for the winter?  The Cambria scarecrow’s life work is not to scare crows but to attract tourists every year around Halloween.  The scarecrows even have a website check out Scarecrow and Harvest Festival.

Shake the Pumkins

One scarecrow says to another
“My what a large head you have.”
The other doesn’t answer.
He’s missing a mouth.
They are guarding the corn
that fell from grandmother’s leg.
Corn that will be tilled
back into the earth,
watered and worshiped
in its time in exile.

One scarecrow says to another
“You’re falling down, my friend.”
Then realizes, he’s not falling
but dancing.
They both dance together.
Spinning around with outstretched arms.
They dance for the harvest
the moon and the stars,
shake the pumpkins like maracas
and fall to the floor.
