Mid August - Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival

Written by Anne Newman - 25th August 2020

Each year, for one week mid-August, hundreds of scarecrows holiday in the delightful Dales village of Kettlewell, Skipton, North Yorskhire.

Human visitors try to find them all, solving clues and puzzles as they hunt.

The Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival is a great way for the whole family to discover this lovely village in Wharfedale and has now been running for 26 years. There are plenty of refreshments available with three pubs and two cafes as well as places to picnic by the river. The whole event raises money to support local community facilities such as the school and village hall.

In 2020 , due to covid, the festival became a Virtual festival. Instead of hunting down and solving clues around the village and writing the answers on a sheet, you’ll be taking a virtual tour of the village and typing in the answers on this site instead.
