Fenland Country Fair

Family Fun at the Fenland Country Fair Sunday 27th & Monday 28th August 2017

The annual Fenland Country Fair promises superb, traditional rural entertainment for 2 days at Stow-cum Quy Park over the August Bank Holiday weekend.

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. Canine lovers are welcome to bring dogs on leads and there is an array of attractions for fans of mans’ best friend, including a parade of hounds, terrier racing and a gun dog demonstration.
