The Basel Autumn Fair – 27 October to 11 November 2018

The Basel Autumn Fair is Switzerland's biggest and oldest fun fair. Dating back over 540 years, it is part of the city's living cultural heritage. A traditional city centre fair, its appeal extends far into the "three countries" region and it draws about a million people from Switzerland and elsewhere to Basel.

It will start on Saturday 27 October 2018, when it will be rung in punctually at midday by the Fair Bell of St Martin's church, and it ends on Sunday 11 November 2018. The big shopkeepers' and experiences market on the Petersplatz always goes on for two days longer, so until Tuesday 13 November 2018.
