Summer may be coming to a close, but as The Sagamore residents are well aware, this doesn’t mean that it’s time to hibernate indoors – instead, it’s the perfect time to enjoy the cool, fresh air before snow coats the New York City streets.
Now that the beach weather is over, New Yorkers can look forward to some fun things to do that are right outside their doors in street festivals throughout the city.
Check out these three festivals below that are much more exciting than any day you spent beachside this summer.
The Feast of San Gennaro, which is the city’s longest-running, biggest and most revered religious outdoor festival, will be held from Sept. 15 to Sept. 25. The 11-day festival features religious processions, parades, free musical entertainment and, of course, scrumptious ethnic meals, sweets and wines to be enjoyed by those of any culture.
The New York Coffee Festival, held in the 69th Regiment Armory, will take place from Sept. 16 to Sept. 18, much to the appreciation of caffeine-loving New Yorkers. More than 70 coffee, food and equipment suppliers will be present to provide coffee tastings, interactive workshops and demonstrations.
The Medieval Festival at the Cloisters, held at Manhattan’s Fort Tryon Park on Sept. 18, will take the park back in time as it is transformed into a medieval market full of entertainers and festival goers decked out in traditional garb. Enjoy medieval music, dance, magic, jugglers and jesters – and, of course, a joist – alongside mouth-watering medieval food and drink.
