Tavistock Goose Fair 2020 Cancelled
Tavistock Town Council has said in response to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic and following careful consideration regarding the safety of our local community, exhibitors and visitors, it has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Goose Fair event scheduled to take place on Wednesday 14th October.
The event which attracts in the region of 20,000 visitors at any one time has run in the heart of the historic market town since the early 12th Century and so it is with deep regret and sadness to advise this year’s Goose Fair will not take place however the safety of the community is paramount.
The Council's dedicated events team will use this time to take stock and work on revitalising Goose Fair in order to be able to deliver a diverse and vibrant event next year and would like to thank all of the working partners, exhibitors, and staff who work tirelessly to deliver Goose Fair each year and look forward to welcoming you all back in 2021.
The Town Mayor Councillor Anne Johnson “The Town Council has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Goose Fair to ensure the safety of our community during the Covid-19 Pandemic. I know some people will be disappointed, but they can look forward to Goose Fair 2021 when we hope to deliver a revitalised event in what we very much hope will be better and safer times”.
Please be advised the Town Council are responsible for organising the one day Goose Fair event, arrangements for the fairground in the Bedford Car Park and Bus Station falls under the Borough Council’s control.
