Welcome to the Ackworth Scarecrow festival

The festival was started in 2020 to bring the village of Ackworth in West Yorkshire together at a time when we were all locked down through the Covid pandemic.  It was the brain child of Karen Campbell and over 200 scarecrows were created in the first year.
