Appleby Horse Fair 2020

Location: Appleby in Westmorland, Cumbria, CA16

Dates: 04 June 2020 - 09 June 2020

A traditional, informal gathering of Gypsies and Travellers - lively atmosphere with plenty to see - horses being washed in river, raced down street, stalls etc. 

Appleby Horse Fair takes place on the first week in June from Thursday to the following Wednesday, but it is essentially a weekend event with the main days being Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

The 2020 Appleby Horse Fair starts on Thursday 4 June, with the main days for visitors being Friday, Saturday and Sunday (5, 6 and 7 June)

If you come on the Monday or Tuesday afterwards you may be disappointed as there will be VERY little to see.
Appleby Fair is unique in Europe and, as well as attracting around 10,000 Gypsies and Travellers, over 30,000 other visitors attend the Fair, with Sunday being the traditional main visitors’ day.
