Mersea Scarecrow Festival

Mersea Island Scarecrow Festival 


We are inviting all residents, groups, companies and individuals to get involved in the Mersea Island Scarecrow Festival!

This year we have changed the system for recording the village’s scarecrows as we were mortified to find that we had missed listing a scarecrow last year!

Theme: Countries around the World

Chillin’ by Akhurst Court, 2017

We would like to invite all residents to create and display scarecrows of all shapes and sizes linked to the theme in your front gardens or island communal areas over carnival weekend.

Let us know that you will be joining in before the 20th June so we can add your street name to the list on the website and in the village, then residents and visitors can meander around the island looking for your scarecrows. So let’s get creative and fill the island with scarecrows!
