Funfairs

Find out about the fairs visiting Fenland over the next year

This page gives information about fairs taking place in Fenland. Other fairs will take place throughout the year with dates to be confirmed by the organisers.

There will be some temporary disruption to some of our public car parks whilst the fairs are on. We recommend using alternative forms of transport if possible during this time as there is a high demand for alternative car park spaces. 

Wisbech - Mart and Statue Fair

The fair arrives in Wisbech twice a year. The Mart Fair takes place in March every year and the Statute Fair in September. Both fairs see the attractions occupy Chapel Road Car Park. The showmen's trailers and caravans occupy part of Somers Road Car Park. 

The next fair will be arriving on Sunday 18th September, leaving on Sunday 25th September 2022. It will be open to the public during that week on Wednesday to Saturday. 

There is no public parking during this time in Chapel Road car park and limited spaces as a result in Somers Road. Find other car parks in Wisbech.

Whittlesey - Spring, Summer and Autumn Fair

The fair arrives in Whittlesey three times a year during Spring (March), Summer (May) and Autumn (September). All fairs see the attractions occupy the Buttercross area. The showmen's trailers and caravans occupy the top part of Eastgate car park. 

The fair due to take place between the 27th-29th May has been cancelled by the Showman's Guild.
