Set up in 1995 by a small group of local people after the Steam Fair relocated from Bishop’s Castle to Shrewsbury.
Traditionally the Michaelmas Fair was at the end of the harvest when farm workers were looking for their next contract and rents had to be paid.
Over the years the Michaelmas Fair has grown into one of the biggest in the area but what impressess most visitors is the wide range of entertainment, there really is something for everyone.
The event is run by a small volunteer committee who meet throughout the year plus another 60 local people who help on the day.
