The Cathedral of St. John the Divine invites all children between the ages of 6 to 12 to attend a Knightwatch Medieval slumber party. Any family or group with children should experience this unique night that combines education, entertainment, and fantasy under one large Gothic cathedral roof.

Upon arrival, all guests magically transform into medieval kings, knights, and princesses. The candle-lit Cathedral serves as the scavenger hunt chamber. Other festivities include dancing, singing, theme-based art projects, and a nighttime storytelling.

Cathedral staff are responsible for leading and supervising all activities.

"The Cathedral provides the perfect setting for an enchanting slumber party experience," explained The Reverend Canon Patti Welch. "Both children and their adult chaperones will enjoy a night of fun activities and come away with new knowledge of the medieval period."

This event will be held on March 22, May 3, May 24, and June 14 and will last from 6:30 p.m. to 8 a.m. the following morning. One chaperone is required for every three children. Tickets are $135 but discounts are available for groups of 15 people or more. Those who wish to learn more can visit stjohndivine.org or call 212-316-5819.
