Strawberry Fair

About Strawberry Fair

Strawberry Fair is one of the largest open-air fair events in the country providing a local festival of music, art and crafts. It has been running since 1974.
The Fair is organised and promoted as an independent, not-for-profit event by the Strawberry Fair Committee (“the Committee”) – a group of Cambridgeshire residents working on a voluntary basis - under the umbrella of a community interest company.
All entertainment and activity is free. The event is expected to attract up to 16,000 people on site at its peak time between 2pm and 6pm.
The 2024 Strawberry Fair will be held on Midsummer Common, Cambridge on Saturday 1st June running from 12 noon to 11.00pm.

Strawberry Fair is a volunteer-run not-for-profit organisation
One of the things that make Strawberry Fair and all of our associated events so special is the people that put their time and effort into making our event so unique. Entirely run by a team of volunteers (known collectively as the Fairies) we work year-round across a number of areas, from finding artists and organising stages, through working out how many toilets are needed, to managing traders and fundraising. Whatever your interests and whatever your skills, the Fair needs your help.

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 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.
