Last Saturdays returns on August 30th for another day of adventure in Downtown Fort Wayne. With a wave of warm weather continuing through the weekend and into next week, this Saturday is supposed to be 85 degrees with a chance of rain during the day. Map out your day with the information below!
Start your day at YLNI Barr Street Farmer’s Market and the Ft. Wayne’s Farmers Market. Filled with Saturday morning shopping opportunities, you can load up on fresh food, local artwork, and other handmade items for your home or personal use. The markets are open from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m.
The Fort Wayne Museum of Art is offering up Summer of Glass II. This exhibit shows unique creations through the work of glass. Gallery hours are from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. and there is an extra $5 charge for viewing the gallery.
The Foellinger-Freimann Botanical Conservatory offers Rising Rhythm, Flowing Form Exhibit. The Showcase Garden will become a sculpture, using the landscape architect’s tools of plant color, earth form, and curved line to create something unique for visitors. The cost is $5 for adults, $3 for children under seventeen, and children under the age of two gain entrance for free.
You also won’t want to miss the In the Dark Exhibit at Science Central. Home to one of Fort Wayne’s most beloved environments for children and families, this exhibit explores different environments of darkness and their habitats. In The Dark was developed by the Cincinnati Museum Center.
Don’t forget to stop by OFabz Loves Fort Wayne at the B-Side of One Lucky Guitar. This party is a huge “thank you” for all of the support of OFabz over the years. Yes, there will also be items for purchase and sales too! Don’t miss it. Drinks. Music. Bikinis. Contests. Giveaways. Pink Flamingos. Summer Fun. You get the idea.
Lastly, end your evening with the debut of the Living Fort Wayne Film Series at Arts United Plaza. There will be a family film, great food, and a great view for all. You can also stop by the ACPL Plaza and enjoy ROCK the Plaza as summer starts to come to a close. Whether you want to sit back or dance, Downtown Fort Wayne has something for everyone!
