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 1st 2019 and we’re excited to announce our theme is Love.

We hope you have a fabulous day at the fair!

The Strawberry Fair Committee

Cambridge's Favourite Festival of Music and Community 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.

Help! Volunteer At Strawberry Fair

Strawberry Fair is a Volunteer Run Not-For-Profit Organisation run entirely by a team of volunteers (The Fairies!) who work throughout the year (yes it really does take that long to organise!) sorting out everything to do with the Fair; from finding artists and organising stages, to managing traders and fundraising, right through to working out how many toilets are needed....!!

Strawberry Fair couldn't happen without all of the people who, generously, volunteer their time and effort throughout the to make our unique event happen.

Or, simply come to one of our meetings (see meeting dates below) and talk to members of the Committee, especially our Volunteer Co-ordinator, Lulu Agate.

Whatever your interests and whatever your skills, the Fair NEEDS your help, which will always be much appreciated!
Volunteering for Strawberry Fair is a great opportunity to get experience and develop skills in the Events, Marketing and Arts industries, to meet new people, to get to know your Cambridge community and to have fun - and, of course, a gt a fantastic sense of team achievement when it all comes together on the day itself.

Whether you'd like to help with planning throughout the year, the preparation of the site or simply on the day itself, there is always space and we would love to hear from you. Don't worry if you don't think you have any relevant skills, there's a place for everyone!
