Scarecrows on Parade 2018

Connecticut’s Beardsley Zoo is proud to present our 11th Annual Scarecrow Competition!

The Zoo invites area art classes, schools, scouts and classrooms to build a scarecrow!  The Zoo provides you with the materials needed to build a scarecrow, and you provide the design elements & creativity.  Scarecrows are showcased on Zoo grounds from October 15 through 31.  Guests will vote on their favorites at Boo at the Zoo on Sunday, October 28, 2018.  

Interested in creating a scarecrow (or more!) this year?  Click here to learn all about our contest, rules & criteria, and to sign-up.  
E-mail Jessica at jtaylor@beardsleyzoo.org with any questions or completed registration forms.
