Northowram Scarecrow Festival is a FREE family event that takes place this year on the May Bank Holiday weekend Saturday 4 -Monday 6 May.
There’s fun for all the family at Northowram Village, Halifax, where in addition to the Scarecrow Trail there’s a Fun Dog Show, Bake Off, BBQ, Live Music, Children’s Games, Raffle and Tombola.
Please can you help the Scarecrow Event to support the local community. The organisers are asking residents and local businesses alike to donate raffle and tombola prizes. To help us please we have 2 drop off points – The Club on Northowram Green and The Shoulder of Mutton on Towngate.
To enter the competition please register your Scarecrow.
This year there will be 2 “categories” to enter
- Traditional – usually a single item (using straw, dried grass etc as the main component)
- Display – those with an idea on a grand scale (as it says, something bigger than your average scarecrow)
Each category winner and runner-up will receive a rosette and certificate.
The ‘Helen Silson’ trophy will be awarded to the scarecrow voted best by the Judges from all those entered. Also as usual there will be an award for the scarecrow voted top in the ‘People’s vote’.
