The Medieval Festival

So who wants to be a nerd with me? Ahem...I mean who wants to experience the rich, imersive experience of medieval culture and practices at the Medieval Festival this Sunday? I suppose they were two ways of asking the same thing, but either way it promises to be an interesting day. If you've never been before, it's a unique experience and as much fun for the people watching (you'll see people dressed as wenches, knaves, knights, and- believe it or not- pirates) as for any of the events offered. If you have been before, then you already know how interesting it can be- and perhaps a few of you will decide to wear a costume of your own. I would love for one of you to come dressed as a pirate. Add the fact that this event is free, and I'm not sure what better plans you might have for your Sunday.

We'll meet at the entrance to the park at Cabrini Blvd and Fort Washington Ave, near the sign. To get there, take the A train to 190st and exit the station using the elevator. When you're on street level, the entrance to the park is just north of where you come up following the row of benches.

From the website:

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.

    Thanks for doing this meetup. My guest & I had a great time! Sorry we missed the group during the second jousting session but we came back and couldn't find anyone. However we were glad for the time that we were able to spend with everyone beforehand. Great meetup!

      Parking will be difficult by the park on Fort Washington but you can try to find parking on broadway along the park going North in the Direction of Dykman street. There are also some garages that are only 10 bucks a day

      September 28, 2013

    • Winter
