The festival takes place over the August Bank Holiday weekend around the village 'Scarecrow Trail'. There are at least 50 scarecrows on the trail around the pond and the village. There are also more around the village in general to see. Scroll down the page and you will see photograhs of previous scarecrows. There is plenty of car parking space in the heart of the village, with very easy access for wheel chairs etc. Why not join us, to enjoy the walk around our Scarecrow Trail and to see our lovely village? SatNavs - use post code YO18 7SD for the entrance to the car park (which is on Maltongate). 


At the festival there are Trail Maps, with a free Prize draw. There will be lots going on on the green and around the village, including stalls, Duck Race (Sunday afternoo). The objective of the Scarecrow group is to give any surplus of funds to local good causes.
