Slingsby Scarecrow Festival

Slingsby will once again be adorning its village with a mix of handmade modern and traditional interpretations of the Scarecrow, shown in a variety of forms to amuse and delight…

Slingsby Scarecrow Festival takes place over the May Day weekend running from 12 noon on Saturday 29th April through to Monday 1st May.  Scarecrow entries are displayed around the Village of Slingsby and Scarecrow trails are available to purchase for £2. Scarecrow trails are available from our ‘pop up’cafe in the Methodist Chapel, or from Robin Hood Caravan Park or the Village Shop. Our pop up cafe will be serving refreshments and home made cake and savouries and will run alongside our ‘pre loved’ children’s stall.
As the Scarecrow Festival runs into the May Day Monday, its is joined by the traditional May Day festivities which take place on the village green.
These include May Pole dancing with traditional stalls and refreshments.
Slingsby Scarecrow Festival provides excellent entertainment for all ages, and coupled with the May Day festivities, is heart warming traditional fare.
Each year the Scarecrow entries and standard of creativity increase, providing any one attending the trail with delight and wonder.
So you’re all invited to visit to the Scarecrow Festival over the Bank Holiday weekend and remember to vote for your favorite Scarecrow to be in with a chance of winning a prize.
