Creative works of art and design meet Mother Nature's ultimate creativity of fall color at the Eureka Scarecrow Festival. Nestled in the foothills of the Missouri Ozarks, and just 25 minutes west of St. Louis, the city of Eureka will come alive the entire month of October with colorful and artistic scarecrows posing regally in front of businesses, churches, schools and private homes. These are not your ordinary scarecrows!
Each one is a work of art! Whether you visit uptown Eureka, along Fifth Street, running parallel to I-44, or stroll down Central Avenue in downtown Eureka, you will experience a fun and festive feast for the eyes; but make sure you venture down the side streets, too! Scarecrows are "everywhere"!
