Save the date 8-16 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 favorites and with the support of our sponsors and everyone in the community I know that we can make this years festival the best one yet!
It all begins with Sport Weekend, which includes the Scarecrow Champions League Football Tournament on Saturday 8th 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 9th September. Click here to Enter the Fun Run.
Other highlights to look forward to this year include:
The events will once again be spread around various venues in the village with Bothwell Primary School being used as our main arena for the Saturday and Sunday activities. Don’t miss the ‘Indoor and Outdoor Fun activities’ on Saturday 15th September including the Toddler Zone – the Fun fair, Live music, Face painting, Arts and Crafts, Balloon modeling and more!
As with previous years we have activities for all ages.
On Sunday 16th September we have the Grand Scarecrow Parade followed by an afternoon of fun as the playground goes ‘down on the farm’ with live entertainment, massage 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.
