Participate in the Annual Scarecrow Contest!

In collaboration with Los Alamos MainStreet and Los Alamos Creative District, the Los Alamos Arts Council brings a bit of autumn fun to downtown Los Alamos every year by organizing the annual Scarecrow Contest.  Since 2001, scarecrows made by local businesses, clubs, organizations, schools, families, and individuals have graced the walkway lamps along Central Avenue during the week before Halloween, and up to Nov. 1.

You can print a copy of the entry form here: scarecrow2018, pick one up at the Arts Council Office, or at the MainStreet and Creative District Office (Visitor’s Center, at 109 Central Park Square).  Scarecrows will go up on Saturday, October 20th and must come down by 5 pm Thursday, November 1st.  Payment will be made to LOS ALAMOS ARTS COUNCIL only, and they will only take payment on October 20th when you come to put up your Scarecrow.  Call the Arts Council at 505-663-0477 or email them at if you have any questions.
