Sherborne Pack Monday Fair

Pack Monday Fair is a street market dating back to medieval times, held annually in Sherborne on the first Monday after 10th October – old Michaelmas Day. Although no longer an agricultural fair, it is still a major event in Sherborne with four of the town’s main streets becoming full of street traders and food stalls for the day. A funfair is held on the Terrace playing fields.
