Don’t miss the annual Thame Fun Fair that transforms Thame’s High Street for three days in September into a mini theme park with rides, bumper cars and candyfloss.
The fair starts on the third Thursday of September, with the Mayor of Thame officially opening the event at 4.00pm. The funfair runs for three days until Saturday – attracting visitors well beyond Thame.
A long-time tradition in the town, punters head over to the funfair from surrounding towns and villages in Oxfordshire as well as the neighbouring Aylesbury and surrounding Buckinghamshire area.
Visitors can expect a host of different carnival-like entertainment. From massive fairground theme park rides to candy floss stalls, halls of mirrors and dodgems.
The fair runs across the entire high street of Thame. Drivers can expect road closures and diversions to be in place, and commuters will see buses running on alternate timetables.
Entry to the fair is free at all times, but charges apply to rides and activities.
