This lengthy celebration of everything medieval features brand-new multi-story Tudor Shoppes, as well as a Tudor Rose Stage that will play host to musicians and comedians. Visitors will also find food pavilions, rides, and games, including archery and axe throwing,  during this event located in Tuxedo Park.
