GET READY FOR ANOTHER FUN EVENT THAT MAKES GLEN ELLYN A DESTINATION CITY

GLEN-ELLYN–Follow the Rows and Rows of 75+ Scarecrows in downtown Glen Ellyn at this FREE family-friendly and socially distant outside event starting Saturday, October 16 through Halloween on Saturday, October 31. While choosing your favorite scarecrow, explore unique one-of-a-kind storefronts with their Halloween decorated windows and dine the fall menus at our vibrant restaurants. Vote for your favorite scarecrow created by scout troops, community members, local businesses, and non-profits. Voting will take place from our facebook page awarding the top scarecrows accolades for a job well done. Scarecrow Row Maps will be available on-line so not to miss one of these unique and homemade scarecrows.


“In 2020 this event was formed to replace our downtown trick-or-treating due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We never could have imaged the popularity of the event in which over 100 scarecrows were created. This just shows what a strong sense of community we have” said Dawn Smith, Executive Director of the Glen Ellyn Chamber of Commerce. “The mission for Scarecrow Rows is to create pedestrian traffic downtown to support local businesses while highlighting all the amazing non-profits. People are looking for something to do for the Halloween holiday that is safe, fun and unique. We are proud to provide Scarecrow Rows!” Smith added.


Scarecrow Rows is located in quaint downtown Glen Ellyn and easily accessible via the Metra or highway. Free parking is available at both downtown parking structures and flat lots. Use the map as a resource in helping locate convenient parking in the downtown.
