We look forward to this year's fair (now in its 43rd year) on the 30th September, and its theme of Twenty Years of Harry Potter. This year's beneficiaries will be Soham Community First Responders and Soham Creative Minds, for whom we will be raising money by holding competitions for the largest pumpkin, sunflower and various other vegetables; there are also other competitions ranging from cookery to poetry.
Seed letters sponsored by Mr Fothergill's have been sent out to all local schoolchildren, and we hope that they are now growing this year's champion pumpkin and sunflowers.
Entry forms for the competitions can be downloaded from the forms menu above, or if you are not a competitor, forms for booking a stall at the fair or to include an advert in our brochure can be downloaded from the same location. Please note that we must have your advert content and payment by 1st July for it to be included!
Finally, if you wish to make a donation to this year's fair as a raffle prize, there is a form for that also and we thank you for your kindness in doing so.

Please note that this site is best viewed in Internet Explorer 11.

The fair has been running since 1975 and is held annually on the last Saturday in September. Every year we raise money for local charities, while providing the community with an enjoyable day out.

In the morning, we are busy booking in entries for our various competitions; then in the afternoon we open to the general public for viewing.

Other attractions include Vintage Vehicles, Bygones, Charity Stalls, Arena Displays by local groups, a Funfair, BBQ, Refreshments, Raffle and Prize Giving Ceremony.

Also please note that we have to abide by the wishes of the Town Council and insist that there are no dogs brought onto the recreation ground except for assistance dogs.
