CAMELOT RETURNS TO MANHATTAN! Permalink
Medieval Festival, Stuart Gartner, Washington Heights, WHIDC
Gartner + Bloom
is pleased to support the Washington Heights and Inwood Development Corp (WHIDC.org), which holds the annual Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon Park on Sunday, October 1, 2017 from 11:30 am to 6pm.
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 fair-goers 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! Yes, they do knock each other off horses!
Admission is free. This annual event is sponsored by the City of New York Parks and Recreation and the WHIDC.
We hope to see everyone there!
