Stow Fair 26th October 2017
In fields on the Maugersbury Road, Stow-on-the-Wold, Gloucestershire
The Gypsy horse fair attracts hundreds of sightseers to Stow twice a year. Gypsies and Travellers gather from all corners of England for a meet and greet and hundreds of horses are paraded and sold, all in one day.
The charter granted over 500 years ago, still decide the dates of the fairs; Gypsy and Traveller people always come to Stow-on-the-Wold on the nearest Thursday to May 12th and October 24th. Often it's easy to see which Thursday that will be after checking the calendar, but sometimes it could be the Thursday before or after the charter day.
