Durrow Looking Forward To 2019
The festival that’s outstanding in its field, the Durrow Scarecrow Festival, welcome you all to our 10th Anniversary Event! From July 28th to August 5th, Scarecrows from all over Ireland and beyond, will arrive in our picturesque village, for what has become one of the most popular festivals in the country.
Once again, we look forward to seeing you all in Durrow, to enjoy with us, a week of uninhibited imagination, creativity, music, food, fun and above all else, the scarecrows who turn up with your laughter in mind. This festival is a volunteer, community run event, with all proceeds used for the improvement and development of our village! It can only happen with the help and support of our sponsors, and all our volunteers, and as always we would like to thank them for everything they do. Take a bow!

The Durrow Scarecrow Festival in Co Laois made it into The Irish Times Ticket supplement’s Top 10 Festivals. The focus is very much on the family and teenagers are well catered for in the Teen Zone. Great fun plus the serious business of the All-Ireland Scarecrow Championship with a prize fund of €3,000 to be won. We love this festival.
Durrow Scarecrow Festival has to be one of the most fun ways to raise funding for a locality. You could find anything from Jedi Knight to Springsteen scarecrows. In Durrow no nook or cranny goes unused. The approach roads feature large bales tarted up to grab the eye of motorists. A former Esso station is set up as a themed exhibition area - fantastic stuff!
