Medieval Festival at Sands Point

Medieval Festival at Sands PointFor a medieval journey alongside a real-life castle overlooking the Long Island Sound, visit the annual Sands Point Medieval Festival, where you’re bound to be called “M’lady” or “Good sir” more times than you’ve ever thought possible.

Each year, the preserve grounds are transformed into a tented medieval village, and modern folk take on the personae and dress of wenches and knights from the Middle Ages.

Steeped in tradition, the festival includes a live jousting tournament, archery demonstrations, and a castle siege enacted in the shadow of the preserve’s majestic Castlegould. Kids will tire themselves out as they try on authentic armor, compete in the “fight a knight” competition and kid-friendly jousts, or attempt to slay a dragon. Other activities include a life-size maypole and medieval puppet and fashion shows.

Saturday 9.18 & Sunday 9.19
