No Strawberry Fair in 2021

Unable to proceed under the current restrictions

The volunteer organising committee has had to take the difficult decision to cancel Strawberry Fair 2021.

We know that this will be a huge disappointment to everyone who was looking forward to starting the summer of 2021 with Strawberry Fair and perhaps an even bigger disappointment to the traders and suppliers who have their own strong links to the Fair and are very much a part of the Strawberry Fair family.

We are still planning to run the popular Cambridge Band Competition and entries are now open. Check out the Band Comp pages for more info

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.
