The Stevensville Scarecrow Festival is back and it’s bigger and better than ever! Celebrate fall in the fresh today from 4 to 9 pm, and tomorrow, starting at 10 am.

It’s all free, and this year there are more than 50 amazing scarecrows, smashing last year’s record! Scarecrows are created by local businesses, nonprofits, families and kids. Come vote for your favorites! The festival also includes living statues and activities for kids like carved pumpkin contests, straw bale maze, bouncy house, giant slide, horse-drawn wagon rides, and a pet costume contest.

The Brewfest is this Saturday from 3 to 8 pm, featuring 20 craft beers, cider, premium wines, and alcohol-free kombucha! Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at the event, including a VERY cool Scarecrow Brewfest glass and UNLIMITED beverage samples. Buy tickets online right here, at the Main Street Office, at Burnt Fork Market in Stevensville, or Pattee Creek Market in Missoula.

KGVO is also giving away two pairs of tickets to the Brewfest tomorrow! Download the FREE KGVO app, if you don't have it already. Once you've got it, hit the "MESSAGE US!" button and tell us why you want to go to the event and we will pick a lucky winner later today.

The Oktoberfest Gang kicks off the Brewfest at 3 pm with authentic Oktoberfest music, followed by the Mudslide Charley band from 5:15 to 8 pm with house rockin’ roots music creating a musical gumbo that rattles bones and loosens limbs.

Scarecrow Festival headline sponsors include the Stevensville Main Street Association, Burnt Fork Market, Western Building Centers, and First Security Bank.
