Gallatin Announces Inaugural Scarecrow Hunt

Grab the family, get in the car, take a drive, get out and walk, and HUNT for all 38 Scarecrow exhibits around Gallatin, Tennessee.

The Gallatin Area Chamber of Commerce is helping the community celebrate the fall season with the inaugural Gallatin Scarecrow Hunt. The hunt includes 38 hand-crafted scarecrow exhibits designed to delight visitors with straw and non-straw creations of all kinds, all around town.

Scarecrow artists are all ages and include businesses, churches, non-profits, schools, students, and civic groups. Scarecrow “hunters” are encouraged to bring their cameras to capture their favorite scarecrows, shop and dine local, and most of all, have fun on the hunt! Those enjoying the hunt are encouraged to use #GallatinChamber and #GallatinScarecrowHunt when posting your photos to social media.
