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 no dogs (except for assistance dogs) are brought onto the recreation ground.

Welcome to

This year the Pumpkin Fair falls on Saturday 24th September and we have chosen the following theme:

This is to link in with 'The Queen's Green Canopy (QGC)', a unique tree planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee which invites people from across the United Kingdom to "Plant a Tree for the Jubilee".

Our chosen beneficiary for 2022 is: 'Building Brass Roots'

This initiative from the Staploe Education Trust aims to provide brass instrument tuition to all children in primary schools, with a link to the development of a youth 'training' band with Soham Comrades Band.


Thanks to everyone who helped make our day a success last year!

... and thanks everybody for coming to the fair!
