The event is being arranged by the village committee who arranged Rayne's 100th anniversary commemoration in November of the end of the First World War.
A large stone, which came from the village's French twin Verberie, was placed on the village green watched by the Mayor of Verberie and James Cleverly MP.
Any money raised from the fete will be ploughed back into the village.
The usual stalls will include bric-a-brack and a tombola. The WI will be selling homemade teas and cakes in the village hall and also available will be ice cream, burgers and hot dogs on the field.
The event runs from 1pm to 4pm. Free Entry.
