An historic market day will be revived next weekend at Anstruther’s Harbour Festival.
Anster Fair was immortalised in the epic 1812 poem of the same name by local wordsmith William Tennant.
The relaunched event next Saturday and Sunday will include street entertainment, live music, children’s activities and art workshops.
It will form part of the wider Anstruther Harbour Festival, also on June 4 and 5, which will see festivities in and around two waterfront marquees.
Scores of boats will take part in the annual Anstruther Muster, which will include a classic boat rally and skiff races by St Ayles Rowing Club.
Historic drifter the Reaper will bring in the new Anstruther Lad and Lass for their naming ceremony, before welcoming the public on board for free tours.
Entertainment will include a performance by the country dance troupe Dunedin Dancers, a ceilidh and a fireworks display on Saturday evening.
The festival will open at 10am next Saturday with a parade led by the City of St Andrews Pipe Band.
Revival of the fair was sponsored by retirement home specialist McCarthy & Stone, which is building apartments in Anstruther.
Regional managing director Steve Wiseman said: “We are proud to sponsor this year’s Anstruther Harbour Festival, and particularly delighted to hear that our sponsorship has enabled the revival of the Anster Fair.
“With a packed programme in place, I’m confident this year’s harbour festival will be one to remember.”
