The much-anticipated annual extravaganza, Goose Fair, is set to make a grand return to Nottingham’s Forest Recreation Ground from Friday, September 29th, to Sunday, October 8th, promising ten days of non-stop fun and excitement for people of all ages.

A Carnival of Thrills and New Adventures

This year’s Goose Fair promises a plethora of thrilling experiences with an impressive lineup of rides. Among the newcomers are the TipTop and Xcelerator. These additions will complement the beloved classics that keep visitors coming back year after year, including the Reverse Bungee, Ice Jet Matterhorn, Star Flyer, and two giant wheels offering breathtaking panoramic views of the fair and the city beyond. Goose Fair veterans can also look forward to reuniting with timeless favorites such as The Skid, Gallopers, and the iconic Cake Walk – a ride that has been part of the fair since its Old Market Square days. Additionally, the fair will feature a range of side-show games like hook-a-duck and basketball to test your skills and win fantastic prizes.

A Gastronomic Delight

For food enthusiasts, Goose Fair is a gastronomic haven. Alongside classic fairground delights like mushy peas, Grantham gingerbread, and Cock-on-a-Stick, this year’s fair will offer a culinary world tour with diverse cuisines from Greek and Caribbean to Panjabi flavors. So, whether you’re craving traditional fair treats or exotic international dishes, Goose Fair will cater to every palate.
