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.

If you are interested in becoming a non-food vendor, volunteer or to purchase ad space in festival programs, please contact the organizers.

To All Performers and Vendors: The 2022 Medieval Festival at Fort Tryon is scheduled for October 2, 2022.
