Gracehill Scarecrow Festival & Market returns

Gracehill Moravian Church and the Gracehill Village Environmental Committee are delighted to announce that the Scarecrow Festival is returning to Gracehill this weekend.

Originally planned to take place on the 10 and 11 September, the event was postponed after the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth.

The Scarecrow Festival aims to involve the entire village and the wider community in a event that is great fun for all, whilst at the same time raising needed funds to help maintain and preserve our historic Church and surrounding grounds of the village for all the community.

Get creative and make your own themed scarecrow to be displayed in the village (entry details below), or just plan to go along and enjoy the spectacle of the very best scarecrow inventions will taking a walk around beautiful Gracehill.

The festival was last held in 2019 was a tremendous success with over 60 groups of scarecrows on display.

The Gracehill Scarecrow Festival & Market will take place this Saturday, 24 September, 11am - 6pm.
