Why Weather the Fort?

In 2016, Weather the Fort started with the belief that Fort Wayne- a booming city with a rich history of festivals - needed something to look forward to in the long days of winter. What better way to celebrate winter in downtown Fort Wayne with arts, music, food, and fun? There isn't. 

Weather the Fort is an outdoor winter festival with live music, interactive art, ice carvers, fire dancers, fireworks, beer, food, and many other activites. And the best part, it's FREE for everyone to attend- thanks to all our amazing sponsors!

Additionally, Weather the Fort aspires to give back to the community. A portion of event proceeds are donated to a charity that we feel passionate about. In recent years, Weather the Fort has donated to The Fort Wayne Rescue Mission and Fort Wayne Turners Club. 

We know it's winter, but that's the beauty of Weather the Fort. Join us for a memorable evening on The Landing in downtown Fort Wayne on February 8, 2020!
