The annual Mary Valley Scarecrow Festival is a popular Sunshine Coast event that will be held from September 11 - October 2, 2023. The festival began in Maleny and has been held during spring almost every year since the late 90s. You can expect to find scarecrows from Kenilworth in the south and throughout the Mary Valley via Brooloo, Imbil, Kandanga, Amamoor, and Dagun. Making scarecrows doesnt cost an arm and a leg! Most people have the bones of a scarecrow in the shed a broomstick, a bale of hay and some old clothes, people of all ages get involved and get creative! For day trippers, the festival is a great opportunity to discover the rolling hills behind the Sunshine Coast. Visitors can arm themselves with a Google map to find the scarecrows during September.
