Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park 2018
Another TGTSNBN tradition, the Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park is a FREE festival held every year in one of the cities most gorgeous parks. Fort Tryon is actually fairly easy to get to. One method is to take the A train to 190th street and make sure to take the elevators upstairs. By bus you can take the M4 which drops you off right in front of the festival. I recommend leaving EARLY if you taking the bus or the train. There is almost always weekend delays. You don't want to miss any of the fun. The Medieval Festival is DEFINITELY a costume encouraged event. Many of our members either wear ren garb or HP cosplay. Remember, this is always encouraged not required =) We traditionally meet at a determined time and location for a group photo. That info will be posted as we get closer to the event. The website for the festival can be found here: http://www.whidc.org/home.html

Our main sponsor is Jordan Dené (http://www.jordandene.com/) - Maker of kitchen armor, outfitter of crayon soldiers.

Jordan Dené is a matchmaker of sorts, first introducing and later marrying practicality and pop culture. Pennsylvania-bred and Brooklyn-based, Jordan specializes in creating aprons with geek-chic graphic designs and creative curios like the best-selling crayon bandolier (as seen in Real Simple’s holiday gift guide).

Although initially sewing was solely supposed to be a creative outlet, thanks in part to Etsy’s enthusiastic crafting community, Jordan’s hobby quickly turned into a wonderfully hectic small business.

Jordan’s products are crafted with individual care and are fashionable, functional and 100 percent customizable. With handcrafted items like the ever-popular TARDIS aprons, golden snitch necklaces and canvas bags embroidered with whichever Hogwarts House suits your fancy, Jordan’s shop has everything to fit your niche needs.
