35th Annual Medieval Festival, Fort Tryon Park

The Medieval Festival is a unique chance to experience the medieval period in the most authentic setting this side of the Atlantic.  The area around the Cloisters Museum in Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market village where knights in armor, jugglers, jesters, magicians, musicians, storytellers, and puppeteers will perform.  A blacksmith, manuscript illuminator, pottery decorator, wood carver and other artisans will demonstrate their crafts.  Performers and fairgoers dress in historical costumes.  Medieval food is available and craft items will be sold. The afternoon culminates with a jousting event between knights on horseback! This event is FREE!
