In addition to our year-round activities, Nauvoo is the location for many wonderful events and festivals your whole family will enjoy. Many of these events have become regional traditions and attract people from around the world.
Nauvoo is hosting the fourth annual Scarecrow Festival. Over thirty-five scarecrows will be on display along the Mulholland Street business district from October 3rd through the month of October. Awards will be given to the top 3 entries. The crows are not scared by Covid 19. They will be socially distanced and are looking forward to both old and new "crows" to join them. They are welcoming back the popular minions.
Take advantage of the "Photo Frame" opportunity to have memories captured using your cell phone or camera.
The fourth annual Scarecrow Festival is sponsored by the Nauvoo Betterment Association, a group dedicated to promoting and encouraging improvements to the quality of life in Nauvoo.
