Downtown Scarecrows: Sponsor & Scarecrow Creators Wanted!

in Constituent News Only

Our Downtown Scarecrow Festival will take place during the month of October. The Call to Artists will go out to the public next week. 

As a Downtown Business, you are getting early notice and a chance to register first! If you register by Friday, August 5th, you can request the general location/block for your scarecrow's location!

This year's theme is "Manchester!" In preparation for the Bicentennial Celebration in 2023, we are taking a look at all things Manchester and our community that are good, inspiring, beautiful and worth celebrating!

This annual event is organized by the Downtown District. The expenses include printing, advertising, and prizes. This year we will be saving money as volunteers have stepped forward to provide the labor to install and remove the scarecrow stakes!

We are seeking one Fall Sponsor for $1,000 to sponsor the Scarecrow Festival & Downtown Trick or Treat. The sponsor will be listed on the Scarecrow Signs and will be thanked on all paperwork and advertisement for these fall events. If you are interested in sponsoring, email Joy right away at [email protected]
