Scalby Fair is the longest street festival in Yorkshire. It began in 1977 and has since raised more than £32,000 for various community organisations including Scalby, Newby and Barrowcliff schools, Scalby Cricket Club and Scalby Village Trust.

In 2023, £2,700 was raised and donated from Scalby Walk, £5,150 was raised for Martin House Children’s Hospice from Scalby Folk Festival, and £1,200 given to a range of other local good causes from Scalby Fair funds.
