Garstang Scarecrow Festival

Garstang Town Council will host the town’s very first Scarecrow Festival to be held from 3pm Friday 20th July until Sunday 22nd July 2018.  This community event is set to be an exciting fun filled weekend for all the family.

Follow the theme of the scarecrow trail which is children’s cartoon, tv and film characters to take you round the charming market town of Garstang. As well as the scarecrow trail, there will be prizes to be won, a funfair on Moss Lane playing fields which is in the heart of the town & the Kings Arms, food stalls, mini zoo, face painting, live music, afternoon teas and more.  The trail will give visitors the chance to experience our unique independent shops, cafes, pubs and restaurants.

At the festival there will be trail maps and raffle tickets for sale.  The objective of Garstang Scarecrow Festival Trust is to bring the community together and to give any surplus of funds to local good causes.
