event details



 Cancelled for 2020 but back in September 2021

open from 12 noon until 5pm each day




Thank you to everyone who supported the 22nd Annual Harpole Village Scarecrow Festival.  We had fantastic scarecrows, fabulous stalls and activities and to top it off amazing weather.  We were busier than ever and as expected over 10,000 people visited and we raised a record amount for the village organisations and charities.  Thank you again to everyone for their efforts and support.  


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 and humour of Harpole residents!  


Open top bus tours around HarpoleWhy 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!
