Scarecrow Festival 2024

The 16th Haxby and Wigginton Scarecrow Festival was held in 2024 with an incredible 125 entries.

Over the Early May Bank Holiday weekend hundreds of people — individuals, families and groups — came to visit our church and get their trail maps with clue/question sheets. They then set off to explore one or more of our five talking trails.

Haxby town centre was busy, with families exploring the scarecrows (and shops!), with others venturing into the roads beyond to locate scarecrows further afield.

You can see nearly all the entries below. Click on an image to see it larger, along with its question and answer from the Clue/Question trail sheet.

As usual, we raised money from selling the trail maps and our refreshments to support four great charities and good causes.

A massive Thank You to everyone who took part by making a scarecrow or walking trails! You’re wonderful!
