Scarecrow Festival

Join Our Annual Event

There’s something for everyone!

The Brechin Scarecrow Festival made its debut in 2016 and was such a success that it is now an annual event. “50 Shades of Hay” takes place on September 28, 2019 from 10am to 3pm at the Brechin Community Park. There is something for everyone — games, vendor’s market, hourly prize draws, music, demonstrations, food, a pumpkin patch and contests – Favourite Scarecrow Contest – Business, Family, Community Organization categories –  Farthest Visitor Contest – Photo Contest. Dogs are welcome this year – with or without Scarecrow costumes. We added “Zoo to You” as a permanent attraction – an amazing opportunity for the public to interact and learn about uncommon animals and reptiles. The public gets to vote for their favourite scarecrow, or enter one of their own in the contest. The whole community gets involved in this FREE fun-filled event!
