Scarecrow Walk

We hope you enjoyed the 2016 Granville Scarecrow Walk Festival. 
Please check back here later for information about the October 4 - 28th, 2017 event.
 




October 1 through 31, Granville will experience a huge boost in population.  About three hundred life size fabulous, funny, small, and tall, sweet and scary, silly and sophisticated historic folk art characters and traditional scarecrows will take up residence in the historic buildings and in the most unexpected places.

These creative and diverse character scarecrows tell the story of this rural riverboat and farming community through the decades. A docent and/or a free printed guide will assist the characters in telling the colorful story and the role of each in the history of Granville. Tour groups are welcome and Sutton General Store will customize a menu for your group. Call 931-653-4151 to schedule an exciting fun filled day in beautiful Granville, enjoy the unusual scarecrows, the colorful leaves, unique shopping, and delightful food.

The Scarecrow display is  a community effort led by local artist, Cynthia Matthews and Historic Granville manager, Brenda Curtis. The folk art characters lurking about the historic buildings were created by Cynthia Matthews.  Brenda Curtis is managing the creation of the more traditional scarecrows  found on the streets and in Pioneer Village. These are  were created by volunteers, community members, and local art classes. I hear, surprises are being planned.

Visit the Village of the Artists and the Legends of Tennessee created by Jackson County High school art classes of 2013 and 2014 under the direction of Nancy Pruett.

We welcome characters of the 20's and Smith County Legends created by Gordonsville High School art class under the direction of Jenni Penual.

The 2014 Historic Scarecrow Walk was successful because of the efforts of local artists, volunteers, art classes, and the local community.  Over 4,000 visitors toured Granville in October 2014 and listened to the story of the historic town of Granville told by these creative and diverse characters.

The 2016 Scarecrow Walk begins October 1 at the Fall Festival. You may visit these characters Wednesday through Saturday the entire month of October. Wednesday - Friday hours 12 noon- 3PM and Saturday hours 12 noon- 8PM.  Sutton General Store opens at 10 AM each day. Food is available each day at Sutton Store. Groups should call and make reservations. Sutton General Store 931-653-4151.
