The fair is coming to Barnstaple!

The fair is coming to Barnstaple from Wednesday 13th September - Saturday 16th September 2017, with the carnival being held to round up events on Saturday 16th September 2017. This is one of our biggest local events attracting up to 20,000 people. Barnstaple fair and carnival has been held in the town since 1931 and has run for 71 consecutive years!

The carnival queen and her attendants will be setting off from the hotel in the afternoon as they do yearly, and the carnival procession starts at 6pm from the civic centre.
