Medieval Festival, Fort Tryon Park, New York, NY

       We'll see the Medieval Festival. You can enjoy seeing and hearing Medieval knights, music, dance, jesters and other performances. Some food will be available in the park, but it's fairly expensive, so you can also bring your own snacks.
       Weather permitting, we're meeting at the southern entrance to Fort Tryon Park: Take the A train to 190th Street. There may be an exit nearer the front of the uptown train that is closer to our meeting place. Or you can take the #4 or #98 bus. Get off or walk to where Fort Washington Avenue and Cabrini Boulevard meet the entrance to the park at a traffic circle, just where it becomes Margaret Corbin Drive. See map.
