Milton Scarecrow Festival

The Milton Scarecrow Festival is held each year on the June long weekend in the South Coast area of NSW, Australia.

Crowds flock every year to see the street performers, market stalls, horse drawn carriage rides, a farm animal zoo, and of course, the Milton scarecrows.

There are scarecrow prizes donated by local businesses, scarecrow face painting and a children's scarecrow costume competition.

Each year Milton Scarecrow Festival has a different theme.

Visit our galleries showing some of the wonderful Milton scarecrows created in previous years:

2010 -- 'Classic Traditional Scarecrows of the 1800s'
2009 -- 'Fairy Tales'
2008 -- 'Going Outer Space'
2007 -- 'Colourful Crazy Characters'
2006 -- 'Scarecrows Go to the Beach'

2005 -- 'Scarecrows Go to the Circus'

The Milton Promotions Committee invited Scarecrows in Motion to bring the Bicycle Built for Two display to the 2005 Milton Scarecrow Festival.

So our animated scarecrows, Alice, Harry, Anton and Nellie, danced and performed their music for two days for the Milton crowds. And Daisy and Harold pedalled their Bicycle Built for Two along the Milton main street to the music of the Bridal March.
