About Big Weekend

One of the city’s best-loved free outdoor events, organised by Cambridge City Council, Big Weekend welcomes thousands of people of all ages across the three days.

The city centre’s historic open space is transformed with an array of attractions and a stream of top artists descend on Cambridge to play alongside local talent throughout the weekend.


Parker’s Piece is fully accessible. Activities are reached across grass, which may be soft or muddy depending on the weather.

There will be lots of activities happening on the day including live music, some loud noises and lots of crowds.
