Last Saturdays returns on September 27. Landing on the first week of fall, there is a full day of fun events planned for the day. Whether you want to stay inside or enjoy a few hours out of the sun, Downtown Fort Wayne has plenty of things for you.
Start the day off by picking up some fresh produce, homemade items, and delicious treats at the YLNI Barr Street Market. Located at Barr Street and Wayne Street, the market is open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. There will also be free activities & admission to The History Center until 1 p.m.!
Fort4Fitness will also be enjoying Downtown with their quest to bring fitness to Fort Wayne. Their latest event is one more chance to enjoy participating or watching from the sidelines. If you are looking for something a little more laid back, we recommend nature captured in its natural element.
The Botanical Conservatory’s exhibit, Rising Rhythm, Flowing Form Exhibit, will continue during Last Saturdays. The Showcase Garden will become a sculpture, using the landscape architect’s tools of plant color, earth form, and curved line to build a harmonious and vibrant eye-scape for visitors. Don’t miss it or the Summit City Brewfest that goes until 5 p.m. and features some of the best brews in the Fort at Headwaters Park.
In the evening, plan to attend the family-friendly film series by Living Fort Wayne that will feature a free showing of E.T. at Arts United including live music by the Wayne Funk Orchestra. There is also a showing of Manhattan Short at Cinema Center at 7 p.m. and the Philharmonic returns to the Embassy Theatre in the evening for another breathtaking performance.
Whether you are looking to get physical, listen to some tunes, enjoy the weather, take your sweetheart on a date, enjoy a night with the family, or take in a performance, Downtown Fort Wayne is the place to be. Last Saturdays never disappoints. Join in the rebirth of Downtown and visit the long list of places to enjoy, dine, and shop!
