Hull Fair 2018

Yes it’s that time of year again! Hull Fair arrives in Walton Street on Friday October 5th, 2018.

What is Hull Fair?

Hull Fair is one of Europe’s largest travelling funfairs, which comes to Hull for one week. Unlike small local fairs, Hull Fair attracts rides, attractions, and travellers from a wide variety of different regions.

The fair is one of Hull’s biggest traditions, as well as one of its oldest, having reached its 700th anniversary in 1993. Carrying on with such tradition the fair is opened by the Lord Mayor of Hull on the opening evening, normally at 5 pm. It first opened from 9 to 23 March 1278.

Stalls down Walton Street are filled with the sights and smells of traditional fairground food from hamburgers and hot dogs to candy floss, toffee apples, pomegranates and even hog roast.
