10 Things To Do in Charlottetown This Fall 15 Header Item 1

Scarecrows in the City Schedule of Events

Taking place October 9 – 18th, 2020, the all-new Scarecrows in the City Festival will take over the downtown core of Prince Edward Island’s seaside city. The streets, shops, and other public spaces of downtown Charlottetown will be DECKED with hundreds (yes, hundreds) of scarecrow installations, fall decor, costumed stilt walkers, and seriously festive vibes. Meanwhile, our restaurants and shops will offer a little something for everyone—from specialty harvest dinners and wine tastings to live music and intuitive card readings. Check back often as more events get added to the schedule below.

Are you a planner? Book your seat, tour, or table in advance to avoid disappointment. More of a last-minute warrior? Walk-ins are welcome (at most places) so you can always try your luck – if you dare! Please also note that some events are free, but many require paid entry in advance or upon arrival.

While most outdoor tours, self guided walks, performances & events will naturally allow for physical distancing, we remind all festival-goers to please wear a mask indoors as needed and maintain physical distance to ensure the optimal health & well-being of all participants. Cleaning protocols and public health operational plans will also be in place by all partnering businesses & organizations.
