Fenland Country Fair 2022

Fenland Country Fair

The annual Fenland Country Fair promises superb, traditional rural entertainment for two days at Stow-cum Quy Park over the UK August Bank Holiday weekend. Since the British weather played havoc with so many country fairs last year, the Fenland Country Fair at Stow Cum-Quy decided to extend its operating hours in order to give everyone the opportunity to experience traditional country life. The fair is a must-see event, as last year’s Diamond Jubilee and Olympic Games showcased all that is great about Britain, a place where you can experience true country life, with country charm and quintessence all coexisting together.

Visitors to the annual Fenland Country Fair can enjoy a range of old and new displays of rural pastimes over the August Bank Holiday weekend. A truly traditional country fair, the Fenland Country Fair takes place at Stow cum Quy near Cambridge with free entry for children. Show organiser, Malcolm Hall, talks about his aims: “I want the smells and sounds of the fair to take people back to their childhood and a simpler traditional way of life… vintage cars and farm machinery, demonstrations of old rural crafts from days gone by, cakes from the Women’s Institute, Falconry and Sheepdog displays, listening to the sounds of clay shooting in the background whilst sitting on haybales, and hearing people laugh as all the dogs go the wrong way around the dog agility course”.

With free admission for children under 11, there are plenty of activities to keep young people entertained – little girls are sure to enjoy riding the Steam Gallopers while the boys can have a go at archery or watch the Vintage Parade and falconry displays. Canine lovers are welcome to bring dogs on leads, and there is an array of attractions and services for fans of man’s best friend, including a parade of hounds, terrier racing and a gun dog demonstration.
