Experience Art. Discover Downtown.

Every month on the Last Saturday, downtown Fort Wayne offers a wide variety of activities. The goal for the Cultural District is to attract visitors downtown to experience diverse social, arts, and cultural opportunities. There are events for every age and interest. Last Saturdays is a great way for individual artists and organizations to share their message with a large, built-in audience, and create vibrancy in downtown Fort Wayne. Let us know about your downtown event on a Last Saturday by emailing Tanya at Tanya@DowntownFortWayne.com.
