The Art

500 pounds of scrap. 2 weeks. Unforgettable Art.

The Auction

A live auction will be held on Saturday, July 16th for all ScrapFest Sculptures.  The best way to participate is to attend the Old Town ScrapFest Event. There you can see the pieces in person, enjoy music, artisan booths, educational activities, and participate fully in the auction.

If you cannot attend the live auction, we have a limited number of proxy-bidders available that can execute your instructions over the phone, or based on a minimum and maximum bid set by you. To participate by proxy-bidder, you must be reachable to pay for any purchased piece(s) with a credit card on July 16th at approximately 7:45 PM.


ART Competition

Sculptures created for ScrapFest are automatically entered into a juried competition with cash prizes and one-of-a-kind trophies awarded to the top three pieces and peoples choice.
