Throughout the year the town of Cuéllar stands out for having a varied sample of fairs, highlighting the following:
The Cuéllar Fairs have their origin when in the year 1390 the monarch Juan I of Castile granted the privilege to the town to have two annual fairs, of 20 days of duration each: the first for the 20 of May and another the 8 of October, with the same privileges as those of Valladolid, merced that it is subsequently ratified by his successors.
These fairs served as a model to create others such as the Fairs of Medina del Campo, and they continued in time until the mid-twentieth century, when the supply and demand of the fair was based on livestock, economic engine of the region. At the end of the 1960 years it began to lose interest, until it was recovered in the decade of the 1980 years as a multisectorial call, a character that it still has today. "Cuellar is a great showcase where you can see the latest news of our companies." The Cuéllar Fair turns the Villa into a center of regional and provincial reference, visited by thousands of people in search of new products and new technologies, of a space for the meeting.
