The scheduled workshops in advance of the 2015 Cambria Scarecrow Festival have been canceled because too few people had registered.
The “Build-A-Crow” and “Restore-A-Crow” workshops had been scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 1, and Saturday, Aug. 22. The workshops on building and restoring scarecrows had been conducted for six years, but the festival’s board of directors concluded that community interest in the workshops wasn’t sufficient to hold them this year.

The festival has also named three judges for the festival. They are:
- Sandra Duerr, executive editor of The Tribune since 1998. Duerr has 40 years of experience as a reporter and editor in Wisconsin, New Jersey and Kentucky. The Tribune has won more than 250 state and national awards under her leadership, and she has served as a Pulitzer Prize juror three times.
- Noreen Martin, chief executive officer of Martin Resorts, a family-owned organization on the Central Coast. Martin was appointed in 2012 as a commissioner for Visit California, the state’s official tourism board, and became chief fiscal officer in 2014.
- Jo Wemple, a Cayucos resident who hosts a travel-themed television show called “On the Road with Jo.” Wemple has acted as spokesperson and on-air talent for numerous projects, ranging from the Department of Defense to DirecTV.
