By the people of Cambridge. For the people of Cambridge.


Welcome to Cambridge’s most popular event. We’re free, we’re volunteer-led and we’ve been going for over 40 years.

This year’s festival is happening on June 2nd 2018 and we’re excited to announce our theme is Heroes.

Information about what’s on at the fair is can be found under ‘Areas & Events’. If you want to get involved in volunteering with us ‘Support the fair’, and for more information on being a trader, check out the ‘Traders’ section.

We hope you have a fabulous day at the fair!

The Strawberry Fair Committee

Cambridge's favourite festival of music and the performing arts

From humble beginnings, Strawberry Fair has grown to be the most popular free, entirely volunteer run, one day music & arts event in Cambridge (and probably across Europe!), attracting over 30,000 visitors throughout the day. On the first Saturday of June and now passed our 40th year, residents and visitors have gathered together on Midsummer Common to celebrate their vibrant and creative city.

The Fair is run entirely by volunteers (affectionately known as Strawberry Fairies) who give their energy, imagination and vision to present to their friends and neighbours in Cambridge a great free day out.
