Solvang will welcome the season in true fall style as the village kicks off the 14th Annual Solvang Scarecrow Fest and Contest on Sunday, October 1, 2023. During the month-long Scarecrow Fest, which concludes on Halloween (Tuesday, October 31), Solvang businesses and organizations will participate in the contest by featuring a scarecrow of their own creation posted at their location.


The 2023 Solvang festival includes the use of QR codes and a digital voting system, as well as using traditional paper maps and ballots.

Solvang Scarecrow Fest is part of the larger Santa Ynez Valley Scarecrow Fest. Past SYV-wide Scarecrow Fests have featured upwards of 80 to 100 scarecrows scattered throughout the Valley’s six towns, with main ‘scarecrow hubs’ of Solvang, Buellton, and Los Olivos.
