Strawberry Fair returns on June 2nd with another visual and musical extravaganza for all the family!
Music has always been at the forefront of the festival, and this year’s event is no exception. Throughout the Fair, across 12 hours of the day, you can enjoy an eclectic range of music and performances from well over 100 groups, both local and from further afield.
The volunteer-led events partners with locally based groups such as Cambridge Cinema Shorts, which run Strawberry Shorts, the Fair’s film festival; local samba band Arco Iris who set the streets dancing as the parade snakes its way through the city centre; and the Cambridge Community Circus who thrill the crowds with their deftness and artistry.
The Fair has community stalls where you can find out what local people are doing to make Cambridge a happy and happening city. And, if you want to get your wallets out, there’s crafts to buy and lots and lots of food to satisfy all tastes and appetites.
In Cambridge the Strawberry season starts early, with workshops, benefit gigs and of course the Cambridge Band Competition (now in it’s 30th year), which starts with the new Under 18s competition in November, through to the various heats and finals in March.
If you live in or around Cambridge, there are plenty of opportunities for you to create, perform and take part.
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. This year’s theme is Heroes.
