About Soham Pumpkin Fair 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 - pumpkins, sunflowers, various other produce, but also arts and crafts. 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, Food stalls, Refreshments, Auction and our Prize Giving Ceremony.
