We're Back in 2022!

Strawberry Fair will take place on 11th June 2022

Yes, it's confirmed, Strawberry Fair will be back on 11th June 2022 after the longest break in its history with the theme Love the Planet.

We're looking forward to catching up with old friends and making new ones, but we can't make it happen without YOU!

Throughout all of everything, we still managed to hold the popular Cambridge Band Competition. Check out the Band Comp pages for more info

About Strawberry Fair

Starting the summer season in Cambridge for over 40 years

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.

The volunteer organising commitee is very sad to announce that there will be no Strawberry Fair in 2021.

By this time of year we would be booking performers, booking the first of many traders, placing orders for infrastructure from toilets to marquees to stages and so much more and contacting all of our fantastic volunteers who come to the Common every year to form the crew and to steward the Fair…

For over forty years, Strawberry Fair has filled Midsummer Common with art and music and poetry and love and joy and laughter and dancing and thousands of smiles. As we could not do that this year, we partnered with Cambridge 105 Radio to bring you a virtual Strawberry Fair instead, with over 12 hours exploring each of the areas that make up Cambridge's favourite event.
