We are super excited to be one of the “Gold” sponsors for this year’s “Bothwell Scarecrow Festival”
Save the date 7-15 September
Last year’s event was brilliant. With over 450 Scarecrows displayed, 30 events and 30,000 followers it was our biggest yet! Once again this year we have a number of new events and activities, as well as some firmly established favourites and with the support of our sponsors and everyone in the community I know that we can make this, our 9th year, the best one yet!
The team are busy planning this year’s events with lots of favourites coming back this year.
It all begins with Sport Weekend, which includes the Scarecrow Champions League Football Tournament on Saturday 7th September, followed by a choice of the On Road Cycle Ride to Glasgow or Family Cycle Ride and the 5K & 10K Fun Run on Sunday 8th September. Click here to Enter the Fun Run.
Other highlights to look forward to this year include:
The Famous Comedy Night (2 dates)
Kids Party Night
Farmers’ Market Ross Sales and Lettings are Official Sponsors of the Bothwell Scarecrow Festival 2019
Family Outdoors Fun Day
Grand Scarecrow Parade
On Sunday 17th September we have the Grand Scarecrow Parade followed by an afternoon of fun as the playground goes ‘down on the farm’ with live entertainment, games zone and much more.
The festive spirit provided by your Scarecrow creations is very important, so this year we are opening up the Super Scarecrow Street competition to A STREET, PART OF A STREET or any COMMUNITY GROUP that would like to enter. Find out what we are offering to encourage you to enter the Competition on our SUPER SCARECROW STREET page. For help on how to build your own very special scarecrow visit our Build a Scarecrow page on hints and tips as well as information on our scarecrow building events supported by our friends from Uddingston Craft Bomb and KraftyKidz.
We’re hoping for sunshine but if it’s wet, the fun will continue indoors so be sure to come along. There is loads to do for everyone regardless of the weather.

Look forward to seeing you all at the festival.
