Save the date 8th-16th September
Last year’s event was brilliant and once again this year we have a number of new events and activities, as well as some firmly established favourites. The team is busy confirming all events with more detail coming soon!.
It all begins with Sport Weekend, which includes the 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.

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 Free Games Zone – the fun fair, Petting Zoo, Face painting, Arts and Crafts, Balloon modeling and much 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 music, dancers, races 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 or come to one of our Scarecrow Building Workshops.
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.
