Welcome to Leap, in the wilds of west Cork, for the 4th annual Leap Scarecrow Festival.

From October 20th to November 5th, 2018, be prepared for 10 days of spooky thrills and spills: street entertainers, circus tricks, puppet shows, face painting, tarot readings, broom throwing competitions and an invasion of dancing witches!

Wandering through the village you'll be surrounded by scarecrows of all shapes and sizes, scary delights and surprises. This family-friendly, free festival is brought to you by the community of Leap, their makers, volunteers and sponsors. See you all in Leap, home of the Scarecrow Festival.
