Welcome to the Appleton Wiske Scarecrow Festival history. The Scarecrow Festival will not take place in 2019. Further year’s festivals will be reviewed in 2020..
The events have been a great day out for all the family when they can saunter around the village to see all the Scarecrows and all the exciting stalls.

Each year, the festival became bigger, with more to see and more to do with all proceeds going to village facilities. There were various activities throughout the day including a stall where children could make their own miniature scarecrow and there was a quilt exhibition in the village church. There was also an art and craft show and wood turning demonstration and you could pop into the village hall for lovely home baked cakes are refreshments, tombola and raffle prizes.
Treats included candy floss and ice cream stalls and for the adults a lovely cup of tea and homemade cakes, scones were in the Village Hall. Our delicious hot dogs and hamburgers were available throughout the event.
A must to visit were the art exhibitions in the Chapel and the Church to see the exhibition of quilts made by the ladies of the village. We are so proud to announce that the ladies had donated a wonderful handmade quilt as a raffle prize.
There was a raffle and tombola in the village hall. Entrance fee was only £2 per adult at the village hall (DL6 2AB), and included a scarecrow map, children free. Free parking All proceeds towards village facilities.
