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. This one-day festival attracts visitors from throughout the region to see that our community is a nice place to visit and a great place to invest, live and conduct business in. The event features jousting knights on horseback, falconers, Medieval-style entertainment, educational events and over 100 performers in period costumes. Admission is free. WHIDC has produced the Festival since 1983. It has grown into the largest scheduled event in all NYC Parks, routinely attracting over 60,000 – 70,000 visitors.
