The St Crispin Street Fair was an annual fair held in town centre streets of Northampton, England organised by the Northampton Borough Council.

It took place from 1993 until 2004. A travelling funfair with over 100 amusement rides operated from 10:30am to 10:30pm on Monday and Tuesday of the October half-term school holiday.

Attractions were located in Abington Street, Drapery, Gold Street, Mercer's Row and Wood Hill as well as the market square.

The fair was cancelled by the council after complaints from local traders and shoppers about congestion, noise and diesel smoke pollution from the rides.

The fair will be held for the first time in 8 years from Sunday, October 28 - Tuesday 30 October 2012. Shop owners have raised concerns about how the new fair could affect their business during Halloween weekend.[1]
