Scarecrow Competition


First Prize for the Best Judged Scarecrow!

Sunday ticket for a Family of 4 to the Derbyshire Sausage and Cider Festival

The Edingale Scarecrow trail is being launched for the first time in June 2019 and is part of a growing number taking place in the UK.  A great example is the Elford Scarecrow Festival, which attracts a large number of visitors to their village and raises a huge amount of money for their village hall and Walled Garden.


Scarecrow Trails are community art projects where children, families and local businesses lovingly hand-craft Scarecrows using a range of materials, and range from the wacky to the extraordinary.  For a history of Scarecrow festivals in the UK, there’s some great information and cool photos of interesting Scarecrows here -


You don't need to live in Edingale - Everyone can get involved in the fun and this year we have an amazing prize to kick us off!


  • Any Theme - Most Scarecrow festivals have a theme, but for our first year, we are going to allow our creators imaginations to go wild.

  • Scarecrow Workshop – We will be hosting a Scarecrow Workshop in April – Dates to be announced shortly!
