Brinklow Scarecrow Festival

Brinklow Scarecrow Festival is back again for its third year. Our first one in 2016 went off with a terrific start, which led us to doing another in 2017. This was hugely successful with 8,000 people visiting us over the three days of the August Bank Holiday.

This year we’re sure the Festival will be just as successful with over 100 scarecrows placed around our village and a Scarecrow Quiz/Trail to enter. We are holding our popular Fun Dog Show and new for this year is a Classic Car display, both of which will take place on Sunday 25th August.

Show your talent at Brinklow’s Got Talent on Saturday 24th August from 2pm, registration from 12pm. On the events field there will be live music every day, along with children’s entertainment, from bouncy castles to zorbing. We have a variety of over 40 stalls from crafts to alpacas with ‘have a go’ stalls and an art exhibition. Purchase a raffle ticket to be in with a chance of winning one of the excellent prizes donated to us. There will also be a wide range of refreshments from all our establishments.

So, please come along, you are guaranteed a family fun day out (or even two). Put the dates in your diary for August Bank Holiday weekend, 24th, 25th and 26th August from 11am until 5pm every day.

Parking £3, Programme £3, Combined £5. See our website for further information. For all enquiries please email
