Advertise your business with the Arts & Flowers Scarecrow Contest!

Have a business in the 19947 zip code?

Take this opportunity to advertise your business!

When:  late September through October

Where:  East Market Street in Georgetown

The Arts & Flowers non-profit group has been decorating the town of Georgetown with scarecrows each fall, created by businesses to advertise their business.

Any business in the 19947 area is eligible to create a scarecrow, using the t-form we provide for free advertising! 

This event is a fall highlight for the town of Georgetown.  The light poles located on East Market Street during late September through October are decorated with scarecrows and cornstalks for a festive look that catches everyone’s attention. 

To make it even more exciting, this year we will again be awarding prizes –

                a $100 VISA gift card will be awarded to three businesses for their creativity!


You must register to be able to participate – space is limited to just 18 poles!

Deadline for registration is Friday, September 6th


Rules for this contest are as follows:

  • Must have a business (physical presence) in the Georgetown zip code 19947
  • Must use the t-form provided – and limit the width to 4 feet.
  • No fresh produce may be used (i.e. pumpkins, corn, etc.)
  • Must be durable – the scarecrow will be cable tied to the poles. All parts of the scarecrow must be attached in a method that withstands rain and wind associated with being outside.
  • Advertisement of your business must be visible.
  • The Arts & Flowers group has the right to eliminate any scarecrow that does not fit a family oriented theme.

Georgetown has a long history spanning back to 1791 when the county seat moved there from Lewes, which was criticized for being too far from western Delaware. Originally, Georgetown was laid out in a large square, but that was quickly changed to the circle we all associate with Georgetown with the historic Georgetown Circle at the center.
