Michaelmas Fair Returns To Abingdon
The longest street fair in Europe returns to Abingdon this afternoon.
Abingdon Michaelmas Fair runs from the Market Place, through the High Street, The Square and the full length of Ock Street.
Cllr Alice Badcock, the Mayor of Abingdon-on-Thames says, “The annual Michaelmas and Runaway Fairs are proud Abingdon traditions which continue to flourish to this day.
"The Fairs provide an opportunity for people to meet up and enjoy the attractions which are brought to town.
"The Fairs are also an important milestone in the town’s year, heralding the start of autumn and darker evenings which show the attractions lit up in their full glory.”
Road closures for the duration of the fair:
- High Street
- Market Place
- Ock Street
- Stratton Way – from its junction with Bath Street to Ock Street
