Scarecrow Festival

Scarecrow Festival


Recognized as Illinois biggest “Toddler Friendly” festival, the Ottawa Annual Scarecrow Fest has something to offer every member of the family!   From a petting zoo to giant bounce houses and kids activities, this day long fest is designed to go easy on the family wallet too. Enjoy a vendor fair with booths lining Jordan Block ( 111 Lincoln Place) in downtown Old Town.  This year marks the 30th Anniversary and the scarecrow theme is the 80’s. Visit nearly 40 80’s themed scarecrows throughout the downtown. There will also be a chili cookoff sponsored by the Ottawa High School.  Touch – A – Truck, every kids dream comes true with a hands on opportunity to climb inside a real firetruck sponsored by The Ottawa Fire Department. Be sure to stroll the Old Town Farmers Market from 8am till 4pm. Put this one on the calendar for the kids!
