Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival 2020
September 11 - September 20
The Tamborine Mountain Scarecrow Festival is an annual event to celebrate the great lifestyle we enjoy on the Mountain and which we want to share with our visitors. It is essentially a huge Sculpture Show with the subjects being Scarecrow-related!
Everyone and anyone is encouraged to make a scarecrow and display it on the ‘Spot the Scarecrow Discovery Trail’ or in front of their homes or businesses. The Scarecrows on the Discovery Trail can compete in several categories, for great prize money and local fame. Young, old, clever and artistically-challenged all participate, and the result is hundreds of scarecrows that have to be seen to be believed.

Get ready for 2020…
“Hayden our Scarecrow is wearing a frown
With Covid 19 lockdown he’s feeling real down
So he’s sending a message for all to be knowing
It’s time to get your creative juices flowing
His heart is with his Scarecrow trail
And he’s counting on us not to fail”
Is the Festival still on? The answer is yes but in what format is still undecided. The Scarecrow trail is definitely on and the dates are 11-20 September. Advertisements in papers, web site and face book will be appearing in early June providing all the detail. We hope to have a special guest on the Mountain who may open the festival and then provide an activity for families on Saturday 12 September. The Lantern Parade and other activities are subject to the lifting of Covid 19 restrictions. We have set a date of 1 August for a decision.
