DIY Scarecrow Day
Brothers’ Field
340 Old McHenry Road, Long Grove, IL 60047

Join us for a fantastic fall afternoon making a scarecrow to be displayed in Historic Downtown Long Grove! Over the years we’ve watched scarecrow engineers construct superheroes, cartoon characters, make-believe monsters and more.

We encourage you to get creative with your designs. Builders should bring clothes, hats, shoes, accessories and any other items they want for customizing their scarecrow. (If you have an extra plastic milk jug for the head, please bring one).

Cost: $10 per scarecrow (station) to be donated to the HDLGBA (Non-refundable)

  • Each station may have a maximum of six people working
  • Each station includes a frame, and stuffing to build one scarecrow (clothing, shoes, and accessories are not included)
  • The event will be held outside so please dress accordingly
  • Rain or shine (unless there is severe weather)
  • Please arrive on time. You may lose your time slot if you arrive more than 10 minutes late.
  • Enjoy live music by Rachel Anne

Vote for your favorite scarecrow! Voting takes place October 10–31. Scarecrows built on October 7 will be placed all around town. We invite you to check them out when you’re visiting historic downtown Long Grove in October. Vote for the Funniest, Scariest and Most Creative Scarecrow using THIS FORM.
