Weather the Fort is a FREE event, that's right, FREE. This is possible due to all our amazing sponsors!


Weather the Fort is open to all ages! Every person interested in purchasing alcoholic beverages will be required to have a valid I.D. and will receive a wristband.  


Entry Points will be on Harrison Street and Calhoun Street with the stage on the Calhoun Street side of The Landing.  


There are parking spaces on the street if you can find them and also nearby parking garages available for use. As a reminder, street parking is available for FREE on the weekends.


Wristbands are required for purchasing and consuming alcohol. Anyone not wearing wristbands will be asked to please get a wristband, or leave the event. 



Yes, there will be police and security on duty at Weather the Fort. If you see or have any issues, please let one of them know. You can also notify someone with a Weather the Fort badge for assistance.  



There will be one ticket booth and one alcohol purchase area that will serve beer outside on The Landing. As adults, we ask you drink responsibly. This also includes finding a safe way to get home. We, along with our bartenders, reserve the right to stop serving anyone we feel has had too much to consume or is acting inappropriately. Our security and the Fort Wayne Police Department also have the right to remove you from the park. No hard alcoholic beverages allowed in the event and all drinks purchased inside the event must stay inside the event. 



There will be a ticket booth where you can exchange cash for tickets, as well as an on-site ATM.



We will just be serving drinks this year. With all of the amazing restaurants on The Landing, show them some love and stop by for some delicious local fare! Some may be doing specials during the event, we will be sure to share those to our social media!



We started this festival knowing most likely it was going to be cold, windy, and snowing. Unless of an extreme weather emergency, the event will go on, snow or shine! Please dress appropriately.



We are pet friendly but know there will be crowds, children, loud music, & ice carving. All pets must be on a leash at all times. Please be conscious of the weather and ice as it may be too cold for pets to be walking outside for a lengthy period, and other than service dogs, they are not allowed inside the stores and restaurants on The Landing.
