MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL AT FORT TRYON PARK

Rub the rust off thy armor, iron thy chain mail and polish up on ye chivalry because the 2007 MEDIEVAL FESTIVAL AT FORT TRYON PARK will be held on SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 30, from 11:30AM - 6:00PM!

The annual event is sponsored by the City of New York Parks and Recreation and the Washington Heights and Inwood Development Corporation (a not-for-profit organization). This is the festival's 23nd year!

Admission is free. Expected Attendance: 50,000

The 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!
