There will be actors in medieval costume, belly dancers, romans, horse archery, stand up archery and blacksmiths spread right through the gaol.

Entry to the Fair is $8 adults, $5 children, children under 5 years are free and families $25.

Thought to be one of the most haunted buildings still standing in South Australia, this historic and heritage listed gaol was opened in 1881 and was fully operational throughout World War I and II. During World War II it operated as an Internment Camp for German and Italian people. Although it remained unused between 1943 and 1953, it then became a corrective training complex for young offenders. The Gaol was closed in 1975 due to insanitary conditions and reopened in 1978 for visitors.
