Kirkcaldy Links Market

Links MarketThe Links Market is one of the world's oldest and longest street fairs, containing a variety of rides and stalls. It is an annual event, usually taking place over 6 days in the third week of April.

The Links Market is Kirkcaldy's biggest event of the year, pulling in over 100,000 visitors annually. It features in the memories of almost all Langtonians growing up.

It began in 1304, and currently runs along the south end of the Kirkcaldy's esplanade.

Up until a few decades ago, an important aspect of the town were shows and entertainment, however the market is now dominated by rides and stalls.

Organised by the Showman's Guild, it is also the traditional start of the fair season in Scotland - allowing many of them to premier new rides in Kirkcaldy.
