The Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park

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.

Average attendance of the Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park has been sixy thousand (60,000) people for the past five (5) years.

The festival is free — there are no charges for admission or entertainment.
