Garstang Scarecrow Festival

After the huge success of Garstang’s very first scarecrow festival we would like to do it all over again in 2019 but even better! The local community have chosen HEROES & VILLAINS as the theme for 2019 so get your thinking caps on.

We will be back 5th, 6th and 7th July 2019 and Sunday 7th July also coincides with National Build a Scarecrow Day!

The Scarecrow Festival is set to be a fun packed family weekend involving a huge amount of charming SCARECROWS, a funfair, face painting, mini zoo, live scarecrow fancy dress parade for adults and children, Icecream, children’s entertainment, food stalls, homemade cakes, a colourful pebblehunt, brass band, morris dancers & live music around our beautiful & charming market town. Watch this space for more information. This is a FREE event!

Our first scarecrow festival showcased over 160 scarecrows! Don’t forget it’s free to enter a scarecrow and there are cash prizes of up to £50 to be won!
