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!
