Cambria, San Simeon, North Coast
Cambria Scarecrow Festival where whimsy runs rampant
 Famous festival celebrating its 13th year
The Cambria Scarecrow Festival, Inc. returns in October for its thirteenth season in the California seaside communities of Cambria and San Simeon. Scarecrows are on free public display throughout Oc- tober. In addition, there are special events during the year leading up to the festival.
Evolving from the first festival in 2009 with 30 scarecrows lining the sidewalks and streets of the town, the Cambria Scarecrow Fes- tival has grown to showcase 400+
creations throughout the charming town each fall.
Along the beachfront motels of Cambria and flowing over into San Simeon, local businesses join in on the fun with their artistic rendi- tions. Scarecrows typically begin appearing the last week of Septem- ber, with the full crop making its way throughout Cambria and San Simeon by Oct. 1.
The Cambria Scarecrow Festival has grown into a community-wide event with hundreds of scare- crows bowling, bathing, paint-
ing, pedaling, fishing and flying through Cambria and San Simeon as residents and businesses join in to build these hand-crafted works of art. The festival has grown into one of the most artful and unique
scarecrow festivals in the U.S., drawing thousands of visitors from across the country.
