Parking Information

To provide you with easy access to our event and a hassle-free day we have arranged parking for a small donation for charity on a field in the centre of Garstang. This car park is located just off Castle Lane, Garstang, PR3 1RB. This Car Park is the ideal location to start along the Scarecrow Trail.

Booths supermarket is also along the scarecrow trail and Booths are supporting the Garstang Scarecrow Festival for offering the use of their car park for our event free of charge too. Booths car park can be found off Windsor Road, Garstang, PR3 1EF. There is a 3 hour restriction at Booths and they have asked if you are visiting the Scarecrow Festival that you park towards the bottom end of the car park. A big thank you to Booths for this kind gesture.

Parking is also available at Garstang High Street Car Park, PR3 1FU, however, a small charge will apply here, but his car park is also along the Scarecrow trail and has a number of disabled parking spaces.
