Probably the best value day out for all the family in the
Yorkshire Dales - 8th to 16th August 2020!

  • Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival has been running for over 25 years so its definitely one of the
    original, biggest and best in the UK! Its also one of the best value summer days out for all
    ages in the Yorkshire Dales as a family can spend a whole day here for under a fiver!

    From famous celebrities and sports stars to topical characters and the downright quirky,
    there are plenty of scarecrows to spot in every nook and cranny of this idyllic Yorkshire Dales
    village. As always, we'll have two themed trails too, with clue sheets to find specific
    scarecrows costing just £1 for our daily prize draw to win £10.

    Since our festival began, the other major attraction of Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival has
    always been the amazing homemade cakes, fresh cut sandwiches, soup and more on offer in
    the Village Hall - from legendary lemon drizzles and indulgent chocolate cakes, to traditional
    fruit cake with Wensleydale cheese. O utside the village hall, children can choose a hat and
    be the head for a traditional scarecrow and, as a bit of extra fun for little ones, we have
    several photo boards around the village to poke heads through for a photo memento.

    We have plenty of car parking designated for our scarecrow festival which costs just £3 for
    the whole day and coaches can pre book a parking space by emailing

    All profits from the trail sheets, village hall refreshments and car park go to Kettlewell
    Primary School, the village hall, St Mary's Church and other community projects.
