Come stay with us at Brenham House and attend this year’s 37th Annual Chappell Hill Texas Scarecrow Festival. We are located in Brenham which is about 12 miles north of beautiful Chappell Hill. Washington County has many treasures and one of them is Chappell Hill Scarecrow Festival. Take a step back to a slower pace and enjoy this small town festival. Dates are October 11 and 12, 2014 for this years’ fall Scarecrow Festival. Hours for the festival are Saturday 9- 6 p.m. and Sunday 9-5 p.m. There is FREE admission and just $5.00 for parking. They request no street parking, please. The parking lot is located on FM 1155 a short distance north of the intersection of Hwy. 290 and FM 1155. There will be new vendors as well as the 250 juried vendors. Exhibitors will include home decor, gardening, artists, craftsmen, jewelry, clothing and so much more. There will be delicious country style food, live entertainment and music, and tours of the historic community. There is a special children’s area with pony rides, barrel train rides, face painting, and a petting zoo.
The Chappell Hill Texas Scarecrow Festival is hosted by the Chappell Hill Historical Society, a non profit volunteer organization. This organization is dedicated to the preservation of community’s history and historic buildings. What a great way to raise money for the town and to bring in the fall that we have waited all summer long for.
Brenham’s historic downtown will also be decorated with scarecrows on every corner. The antique and specialty shops will also be decorate for the Scarecrow Festival as well. At this time it really starts to look like fall with all of the great decorations you will see. Make your plans and we will be waiting for you at Brenham House!
