Just One Week To Go – Durrow Scarecrow Festival 2017

Durrow Scarecrow Festival 2017.

Preparations Well Under Way!


Many, many months of preparations have taken place behind the scenes, and yesterday was the day that the Scarecrow Village began to take shape. Over the course of the next week, the beautiful Georgian square, and of course the entire village of Durrow, Co. Laois, will be transformed into that magical place where scarecrows reign supreme for nine days.

So with just one week to go until Durrow Scarecrow Festival 2017 kicks off, on Sunday July 30th, we are really looking forward to welcoming you all to nine days of uninhibited imagination, creativity, music, food and fun! And of course hundreds of scarecrows!!!
