MAGICAL WORKS OF ART

Explore the magic of the Barossa Scarecrows this Vintage Festival and celebrate the creative ingenuity of the Barossa community.

From weird and wacky, to culturally significant, come March scarecrows begin appearing like magic across the region, captivating the attention of the local community and visitors.

The scarecrows are creative works of art, the imagination of the community and carefully created with love, care and thought, each unique in its own identity, story and connection to the region.

Now synonymous with the Festival, the Barossa Scarecrow’s program is an opportunity for the community to showcase their creative flair and create intriguing visual art to adorn vineyards, schools, shop fronts, cellar doors and gardens.

Watch the scarecrow trail come to life from March. Jump in the car with the family, hop on a bike, follow the trail and witness the creative invasion for yourself, and don’t forget to vote for your favourite scarecrow below!
