Running for over 20 years, Kettlewell Scarecrow Festival is one of the original, biggest and best in the UK – and one of the best value summer days out for all ages in the heart of the Yorkshire Dales!
From famous celebrities and sports stars to topical characters and the downright quirky, there are plenty of scarecrows to spot in every nook and cranny of this idyllic Yorkshire Dales village. There are two fun themed trails too – one for children and one for the adults – to find the scarecrows that solve the clues for daily prize draws to win £10 (trail sheets cost just £1!).
Almost as popular as the scarecrows, are the delicious homemade cakes, fresh cut sandwiches, soup, quiches and more, served all day every day in Kettlewell Village Hall. The village also has two tea rooms and three traditional pubs serving real ales and good food
All profits from the trail sheets, village hall refreshments and car park go to Kettlewell Primary School, the village hall, St Mary’s Church and other community projects.
Kettlewell boasts a fabulously scenic setting in Upper Wharfedale – not only appearing in the original opening credits of Emmerdale but also featuring in the ‘Calendar Girls’ movie. They have a lovely grassy play park in the centre of the village and many walks along the River Wharfe and into the surrounding fells. See Info and Getting Here for more details.
As the gateway to the magnificent Yorkshire Dales, people travel the length and breadth of the country to visit this charming market town.
