Mill Road Saturdays Celebrations

About Mill Road and its celebrations

Once upon a time, Mill Road was a quiet country lane leading to the southeast out of the city of Cambridge, named after the windmill that stood at what is now the corner of Covent Garden. It’s the most cosmopolitan street of Cambridge and a bustling street lined with international spice shops and restaurants.

One of the most popular events in Cambridge is the Mill Road Winter Fair. Its held every year on the first Saturday of December. A true celebration of the community and bringing together local businesses, organisations, musicians, artists and dancers. The main focus of the event is food and drink, and what is there not to like?

Unfortunately, there won’t be a Winter Fair again this year. Fear not, the Mill Road community has worked hard to create exciting events for the next three months.

There will be stalls and buskers at Donkey Common and Petersfield on Saturday the 9th of October, the 6th of November and the 4th of December from 10.30 am to 3.30 pm.
