A surprising an unexpected tradition: on August 18 and 19th, 2018, scarecrows will appear here and and there in Piétrebais and nearby villages.
It all started in 2000 and proved such a success the festivities are repeated every year. For 2 days (some time between mid-July and mid-September depending on the year), strange creatures made of straw and cloth take Piétrebais, Happeau, Chapelle-Saint-Laurent and Roux-Miroir over. Hundreds of them! Worry not: there is nothing scary about them. They are, on the contrary quite sweet and charming.
The 20th edition of the scarecrow festival
Make the most of the flea market for children and mums (pregnancy and baby clothes, childcare products, toys...) as well as the many free activities organised for families (bouncy castles, clowns, face painting, zumba, karaoke, music and more).
Don't miss the Scarecrow Dinner, complete with musical entertainment.
Booking by email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or phone (+32 494 24 00 86). The meal is followed by a free outdoor screening.
The Sunday is dedicated to a large car boot sale, with over 250 stalls, a terroir market, a bar serving drinks and snacks and many animations.
Don't miss it!
