Medieval Festival

The Medeival Festival at Fort Tryon Park

What Is The Medieval Festival?
The Medieval Festival brings to life the customs and spirit of the Middle Ages. Manhattan's Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market town decorated with bright banners and processional flags. Performers, guests and festival goers dress in medieval costume. Visitors are greeted by authentic medieval music, dance, magic, and minstrels, as well as jugglers and jesters. The afternoon is concluded with a thrilling joust between four knights on horseback. Costumed vendors will be on hand to demonstrate and sell a wide variety of medieval crafts as well as food and drink. Celebrating the Medieval era, roughly from 476ish to 1500 (before Henry VIII brought in cleavage), the Medieval Festival turns Fort Tryon Park into a Medieval market and village.
The festival is free -- there are no charges for admission or entertainment. Donations at our wishing wells are welcome, however!

Where Will the Festival Take Place?
The festival is held in the area surrounding the world famous Cloisters, a magnificent museum of medieval art located in Fort Tryon Park near the northern end of Manhattan Island. The park offers vistas of the Hudson River and the picturesque Palisades: a setting reminiscent of Europe eight centuries ago.
When: September 18 2016. Sunday, 11:30 am to 6 pm
