Ever wanted to sit with King Arthur at the round-table? Did you ever want to fight in the Crusades? Ever wonder if you could survive the Black Death plague? Well keeping hoping and wondering but if you want to know what it was like to live during the Middle Ages then head over to Fort Tryon Park on Sunday, October 2nd, 2011.
When you arrive you will be greeted by performers, jesters and jugglers with authentic medieval music properly completing the environment’s ambiance. From 11am-6pm there will be food, drinks and entertainment which is all concluded by a joust involving four knights on horseback. You have the option to come dressed for the event or you could pretend you’re a broke-ass time traveler because the admission is absolutely FREE.
Unfortunately mother nature might rain on this festival and if she does the festival will be re-scheduled for October 9th. For any more info and a look at last year’s highlights you can go to the event’s homepage.
