Tavistock Goosey Fair

Tavistock Goosey Fair

What's On

The longest running Tavistock event is its annual Goosey Fair, which has taken place on the Second Wednesday of October since the year 1823! The fair probably got its name from the days when residents would attend to buy geese ready to fatten up before Christmas, although these days it has more a family atmosphere to brighten the start of Autumn.

Local schools close for the day so that children can join the fun, and market traders convene from miles around. There's plenty to entertain the huge crowds of visitors to this special Tavistock event, including fun fairs, rides, candyfloss, a hog roast and plenty of cider.
