Events

All of our events are open to the public during the hours listed (see the “More Information” section).

Unless specifically noted, all events are free. Donations are gratefully accepted!  We do not receive any federal or state funding.

If available, we post a schedule of activities prior to each event.  Always check facebook.com/HistoricFortWayne for any updates or schedule changes.

Please note: The bridge on Spy Run Avenue is undergoing construction and is often down to one lane. Expect traffic delays when visiting the Old Fort. For the safety of our visitors, we strongly encourage you to park at Headwaters Park or Lawton Park.  Otherwise, please use extreme caution when crossing Spy Run Avenue. Construction is expected to last until the end of the year.
