Moulton Crow Fair

Where: Moulton, Cheshire at the Jubilee Playing Field on Main Road
When: Saturday in early July
Time: Fair all afternoon and evening 1pm-10pm with crow dance usually around 3pm-3.30 (check programme as times may vary)

 

The Crow Fair, held every July at Moulton in Cheshire, includes a dance which is unique to the event. With its origins dating back to the Depression of the 1920s and 1930s, when local unemployed men first performed the dance as a way of raising money (before the days of the Welfare State), the dancers are completely unrecognisable in their crow costumes and even today the identities of the dancers are a closely guarded secret. The dance also features a Scare Crow character, and scarecrows decorate the village for the event. As well as the Crow Dance there is a host of other activities and events and plenty of stalls, music and entertainments ; it’s a real family event.
