Tavistock Goose Fair Wednesday 9th October 2014

Every second Wednesday in October 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.

People come from all over the West for the fair, and old and young alike enjoy the atmosphere, especially in the evening when the coloured lights are aglow, and the music coming from the fairgrounds can be heard for miles around.
