New! Scarecrow Contest!


As part of this year’s festive Fall events, the Northland Arboretum is holding a Scarecrow Contest for individuals, families, groups, and businesses to highlight their creativity during October.


Your spooky, comical, or traditional scarecrow will be displayed near the Arboretum’s Visitor Center all month long and will have a chance to win some amazing prizes. Scarecrows must be homemade and family-friendly and should be designed in a way that can hold up to our Minnesota weather. You must provide materials but the Arb will provide a secure post for you to build your design around. The sillier, the better! Rules and registration forms can be found on the Northland Arboretum’s website. Ribbons will be placed on the winning scarecrows on October 19th, and they will remain on display to allow the public a chance to view your creativity during our annual Haunted Trail and Trunk or Treat events.


Entries will be judged for creativity and originality. The winner of the most creative scarecrow will receive an annual membership to the Northland Arboretum. Winners of the scariest and funniest scarecrows will receive a $25 movie theatre gift card.

Thank you to our Event Sponsors!
