Experience the culture of a bygone era against the backdrop of The Met Cloisters and the Hudson River during autumn. There is fun for all ages. This free event is produced by NYC Parks and the Washington Heights and Inwood Development Corporation with support from the Fort Tryon Park Trust. Costumed vendors will be on hand to demonstrate and sell a wide variety of medieval crafts as well as food and drink.
