Event details
Please join us to demo for an audience of approximately 60,000 at the 2018 Medieval Festival outside the Cloisters Museum in Fort Tryon Park.  From 11:30am to 6pm, we will be set up on the "south lawn" as a medieval village, under shady tents with tables, demonstrating medieval arts, crafts, sciences, combat, dancing and singing.

Email the event steward, Mathghamhain Ua Ruadháin <231060@members.eastkingdom.org>, if you can help out with demonstrations, including the activity you would like to show, how much table or open space you will need, and whether you can bring tents & tables to the event.

In addition to our demo, there will be dozens of other artisans, re-enactors & performers, as well as an enthusiastic audience fully dressed for the occasion.  Come and enjoy the largest & most audience-participatory celebration of medieval & Renaissance culture on the Eastern seaboard, in its 34th year.  See the festival's website for full details on the fun:  http://www.whidc.org/festival/home.html
Site Opens: 11:30am (setup begins ~9:30am)
