The Kids Are Alright also involves the Cambridgeshire Criminal Justice Board (CCJB), Fenland District Council, Youth District Council, Connexions, Cambridgeshire Fire & Rescue Service and Cambridgeshire County Council.
CCJB chair and head of Cambridgeshire Youth Support Services Tom Jefford says: "Positive images of young people are incredibly important because they so often end up being seen as a problem. This campaign is a great opportunity to show what young people are really about."
Cambridgeshire's Chief Fire Officer Graham Stagg adds: "Too often we stereotype young people as hooligans whereas the vast majority of young people are decent, law-abiding citizens who want to do the right thing."
The Kids Are Alright marquee will be open to the public from noon-4pm.
The festival will take place at Furrowfields Green, Furrowfields Road, Chatteris, Cambridgeshire PE16 6DY.
