The Strawberry Fair is a traditional, Summer community fair. There are community, craft and gift stalls and plenty of local food and drink, with the ever-popular Pimm’s bar, locally brewed beers, and plenty of strawberries and cream! The event is very popular and every year residents look forward to taking their family to the Fair for a great, affordable, local day out. A large big top provides a variety of live music and dance throughout the day. There is plenty for the kids to do, with small fairground rides and bouncy castles, together with other fun activities on offer. The event is free to enter and usually attracts around 5,000 people. It is always oversubscribed with traders wanting pitches and attracts a lot of press coverage.

The Council provides an affordable family day out every Friday during the school Summer holidays, utilising the Council’s open spaces and working directly with local partners and community organisations. Family Fun Days have grown in huge popularity over the previous years, attracting up to 2,000 at an event. Thanks to our sponsors Razzamataz, Comfy Beds and Brentwood Care Centre, families can enjoy bouncy castles, arts and craft activities, and come and try sports, along with other, free family-focussed fun provided by local organisations. Whilst the majority of activities are free there is a small charge for the bouncy castles, children’s rides and face painting. There are six Family Fun Days around the Borough, with a different location most weeks. The Family Fun Days provide a fantastic opportunity to promote your business Borough-wide to a range of families and attendees, over a number of weeks.
We are looking for organisations to join us, especially community organisations who would like to promote their services.
We are also after small pocket money type stalls or other family focussed businesses who would like to take part.
We are not looking for caterers
If you can provide a free family activity, your pitch is FREE!

Lighting Up Brentwood
Saturday 24 November 2018, 12.30pm-6pm, Brentwood High Street.
Lighting Up Brentwood is the largest community event on the Council’s calendar. The event around Brentwood High Street celebrates the start of the festive season. Much of the popularity of the event is down to the strong network of community organisations that are involved in providing activities along the length of the High Street, which is closed for the event. There are over 60 market stalls selling festive arts and crafts, and hot food and drink, together with Santa’s Grotto, walkabout acts and other children’s activities. There is a packed programme of performances on 3 stages, primarily by local schools and talented community performers. The event attracts a lot of attention from the local press and in 2017 we estimated over 15,000 people attended the event throughout the day with a packed switch-on by the Mayor.
We are looking for stall holders. Please apply using the link below, applications close 21st September
Shenfield Christmas Fayre
Sunday 9 December 2018, 12noon-5pm, In and around Hutton Road.
Shenfield Christmas Fayre is a real community affair with lots of local business involvement and community groups. A large attraction during the event is the truck stage hosting several acts throughout the day including local schools and bands. The main High Street (Hutton Road) will be closed for the event and will host over 60 festive stalls, family attractions, Santa’s Grotto, walk about acts and rides. 2017 saw an impressive snow globe, faux ice rink, large Italian market and piping band for all the family to enjoy. Last year, the event attracted an estimated 5,000 people.
