Plan a Visit

When in the city be sure to tune into Old Fort Radio 1640 AM to hear about our upcoming events and maybe even learn about Fort Wayne’s past.


The Old Fort is located on public park grounds, so you can always wander around and into the parade grounds. However, the buildings themselves are only open during events when we have volunteers on site. There is a 2020 Event Schedule available outside some of the buildings with information about the history of the fort, how each building would have been used, and a schedule for upcoming events. You can also view our Virtual Tour to learn more about the use of the grounds.

Getting Here

We are located at 1201 Spy Run Avenue, which is right over the bridge as you head north from downtown on Spy Run.


Parking can be found in the following locations:

  • On Fourth Street between Spy Run Avenue and Clinton Street
  • At Headwaters Park across the river from the Fort.
