The Durrow Scarecrow Festival is now in its 7th year and hosting the All Ireland Scarecrow Championship offers something for everybody both young and old and it’s a quirky festival not to be missed! This festival has something for everyone there are scarecrows everywhere in many different designs and themes, you will find more than one to make you laugh. There is also plenty more on offer in Durrow during the festival including Scarecrow Summer Camp, Live Music, Craft Workshops, Ladies Night, Country Market, Adult, Teen and Children’s entertainment, Scarecrow Fairies, Scarecrow Mad Hatters Tea Party, Arts & Crafts Exhibition, IWW Wrestling, Woof & Wellie Walk, Teddy Bears Picnic and Scarecrow Treasure Hunt to name but a few with further information on events available on our website. The highlight of the festival is of course the All Ireland Scarecrow Championships in which over 120 scarecrows from the four corners of Ireland and even further afield will compete to win a prize. With a prize fund of €3,000 competition will as always be fierce.

Durrow Scarecrow Festival Volunteers:- There is a meeting this Wednesday 6th April in the Library on Chapel Street, Durrow at 8.30pm, if you would like to, or are wondering about getting involved in making scarecrows for the festival, we would be delighted to have you come on board. Rumours are around that we bite, but we assure you that we just sew, hammer, cut, chop and stitch to create scarecrows, every now and again, you get a cup of tea and if you are really lucky you will get a biscuit and a laugh. Please do come and join us, we would be more than happy to have you come on board for the 2016 Durrow Scarecrow Festival! ... See MoreSee Less
