Goose Fair Site

With more than 700 years of history, Nottingham Goose Fair is one of Europe’s most famous travelling fairs, and is still a fantastic event to delight all ages.

The Forest Recreation Ground will once again host over 500 attractions, from the latest white knuckle experiences, family rides and favourites including waltzers, carousels and Hook-a-Duck.
