The Unique Scarecrow Festival In Tennessee You Won’t Find Anywhere Else
Fall festivals are a dime a dozen around the south, and as fun as they are it’s natural to crave a little change. A fun foray into something quirky and different. Tennessee is chock full of locals who think outside the box and love to celebrate their favorite season with friends, and this unique scarecrow festival located in the darling town of Granville is sure to give you a day to remember.
This year marks the sixth annual Granville Scarecrow Festival, and it spans the entire month of October. The whole town shows out and shows up for the fun, which makes this down-home experience even sweeter.
The buildings and streets of the town are featuring characters from the 1950's this year, but you'll find over 300 lifesize scarecrows - and the spare historical figure - scattered across homes and businesses in the city.
There's even a special street for children, known as "Memory Lane." Here you'll find Bambi, Dumbo, the Peanuts Gang and even characters from the Wizard of Oz in scarecrow form.
Granville hosts this unique event every year to tell stories to young folks and connect with the past older generations lived. You'll find remnants of Tennessee's beginnings, its early statehood, and you might even cross paths with historic military personnel. Their scarecrows beings, of course!
The whole town comes together to tell an incredible visual story, and there's even a printed directory that tells the history of each aspect of the festival. You can even take a guided tour if you're looking to eke out the entire history laid out across town. Granville doesn't miss a beat, now does it?
