Big Weekend

Fri 8 – Sun 10 July

Parker’s Piece


Enjoy a range of activities and performances across the weekend right in the heart of the city on Parker's Piece.

Starting with a cascade of dazzling fireworks on the Friday evening, The Big Weekend attracts record numbers of people to the city and features performances from show-stopping artists, delighting crowds throughout the weekend.

Enjoy a range of activities including games, science and sports workshops, face painting, storytelling, pop-up art gallery, French market, food stalls and much more!

Traditionally the weekend is brought to a close with a day of world music and dance celebrating ethnic diversity within Cambridge and of course the hugely popular Cambridge Mela, Cambridge's summer celebration of Asian Culture.
