Carbondale: Scarecrow Festival

Join the Carbondale Arts Alliance’s annual citywide Scarecrow Festival! Walk around downtown Carbondale and see all the scarecrows and local businesses decorated for this event. In Memorial Park, there will also be a marketplace with vendors, a petting zoo, face painting, and live music.

Take a scenic train ride through the Lackawanna Valley along the old Delaware & Hudson Railroad tracks to Carbondale, PA.

Carbondale’s present-day train station was built on the site of the Delaware and Hudson Seventh Avenue train station, which opened on February 1, 1896. Local and express trains, both north and south, arrived and departed from Carbondale daily. In the 1950s, as many as fifteen passenger trains departed daily from this station for Scranton.
