The Harpole Scarecrow Festival raises funds for a variety of village charities and community projects. We aim to provide residents and visitors with a weekend of simple traditional entertainment, which can be enjoyed by the whole family. Some visitors return year after year to see our scarecrow displays and many other activities.
Village residents are encouraged to create and display scarecrows of all shapes and sizes in their gardens and visitors can spend a delightful day meandering around our charming village – you will be amazed at the creativity of Harpole residents!
Why not enjoy the scarecrows from the open top bus that tours the village throughout the weekend? Or perhaps you prefer to browse the stalls, or stop for refreshments and a slice of delicious home-made cake. Just escape for an afternoon of simple family fun!
