St. Giles’ Fair has been an Oxford tradition and annual affair since the 13th century. Each September, people attend the two-day event in their masses.
Held in Oxford’s city centre, St Giles’ Fair is always on the first Monday and Tuesday of the month. The funfair is particularly popular with local children before they return to school. It’s a place to see familiar faces and catch up with close friends.
The rides are impressive and vary in price but generally between £2.50 and £5. Running till around 11pm each night, the prices increase later in the evening as the crowds gather.
An evening at St. Giles’ Fair is one filled with laughter, candy floss, and dizzy spells.
There’s a little something for everyone and the atmosphere is lovely amidst the blaring music and flashing lights. Finally, do opt for the bigger rides – if you’re brave enough that is!
If you are ever in Oxford at the beginning of September, be sure to visit.
