Maidstone Scarecrow Festival
Maidstone Borough Council is organising a Scarecrow Festival for the autumn half term, from 24 – 29 October 2022 and we are delighted to be taking part.
The competition is open to local schools and community groups to enter a scarecrow, which can be either 2D or 3D, into the festival and there will be prizes for the best in each category.
Shops and businesses across the town centre will provide host locations for the scarecrows, as well as the shopping centres and the Lockmeadow Entertainment Complex.
It will be down to the individual groups to organise materials to make their scarecrow, and it will need to be self-supporting (either a frame or chair/prop to hold it up). Winners will be decided by public vote; each scarecrow will be displayed with a label identifying who made it and a QR code to link to a webpage to vote. Winners will be announced the week after (31st October).
