A traditional street fair filled with a variety of stalls, it has become one of the biggest fairs in Cornwall with hundreds of people visiting the town every year. In the Town Hall there is a display from the local bee keepers and outside there is a fun fair and street entertainers.
10 Oct Tavistock Goosey Fair
Tavistock plays host to an annual fair dating back to the 12th Century. Farmers brought their geese for sale, and drove them through the streets to the Market. Although this practice has virtually stopped, it is still possible to obtain goose lunches at the various restaurants and cafes in the town on that day. The fair attracts market traders and showmen from all over the Country. Stalls and side-shows are set up in the centre of the Town, and the adjacent roads are filed with over 200 traders.
