2017 Newburyport Fall Festival Brings Scarecrows and Song

She loves him the most….and we just love the autumn weather here in Newburyport.  The North Shore keeps shining through the cooler weather. Cider doughnuts and apple pie at Russell’s or Cider Hill? Pumpkins at Tendercrop?  Long walks through the falling leaves in Maudslay?  Football and Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving?  Hard to choose a favorite.

Visit us downtown on Sunday & Monday (October 8the and 9th) of Columbus Day weekend for our annual Fall Harvest Festival!

Enjoy great food, live music, and family fun while celebrating autumn’s arrival. Explore downtown shops as well as craft vendor booths from artisans all over New England. Events run from 10am to 5pm.

Bring the kids in the morning for children’s entertainment in Market Square. Friendly pets are always welcome too.

One of the BEST parts of the Newburyport Fall Harvest Festival are the interesting scarecrows decorating all the lamp posts downtown.

This year will be the 16th annual scarecrow contest! This contest is free, fun, & open to the public! Entries by individuals, families, teams, schools, churches, clubs, organizations, and businesses are all welcome.  You can fill out an application form on Saturday or early Sunday morning.
