The Medieval Festival brings to life the customs and spirit of the Middle Ages. Fort Tryon Park is transformed into a medieval market town decorated with bright banners and processional flags. Performers, guests and festivalgoers dress in medieval costume. Visitors are entertained by authentic medieval music, dance, magic, minstrelsy, jugglers, jesters, craft demonstrators and re-creators.

Most visitors come by public transportation, which has stops right at the park entrance (A Train to 190th Street or M4 Bus to 190th and Ft. Washington Avenue). There is no parking for visitors in the park. (Parking is provided for performers and vendors only at a nearby schoolyard.) The rain date will be the following Sunday, if needed.
