Sadly, a lot of these old festivals and traditions have died out. However, “Goose Fairs” were held throughout the West Country and also other parts of England in early-October. The reason being was that goose was traditionally roasted for Michaelmas (29th September). When the new calendar was adopted in 1752, the festival got shifted forward to around the 10th of October or the nearest weekend days around it.
