3. An Annual Medieval Festival Held Inside the Park Attracts an Average of 6000 Participants

Manhattan’s one and only Medieval Festival takes place in the heart of Fort Tryon Park, bringing life to the customs and spirit of the Middle Ages. The event is organized by the Washington Heights & Inwood Development Corporation, a not-for-profit corporation and supported by the New York Department of Parks and Recreation.

Celebrating its 31st year, Fort Tryon Park will be transformed into a medieval market filled with bright decorations and authentic medieval music. Performances and activities will be offered to festival goers, as well as costumed vendors selling a wide range of arts and crafts as well as food and drink. Better yet, the festival is free- join the festivities this fall in the area surrounding to the Cloisters on Sept 18, 2016.
