Delectable Chocolate - DeBrand Fine Chocolates New Location

For nearly three decades, DeBrand Fine Chocolates has been a favorite destination for visitors to the Fort Wayne area. With a focus on high-quality chocolates and desserts, it has remained a top stop for locals as well. Until now, you’ve had to venture up to the corporate headquarters near Dupont Road, out to Jefferson Pointe shopping center, or north of Coliseum Boulevard to the Coldwater Road location in order to enjoy their sweet treats. With the growing popularity of downtown shopping and dining, Owner’s Cathy and Tim decided it was time to expand their presence.

West Central Home and Garden Tour & Artfest

September is an ideal time to be outdoors in Fort Wayne, and so it's no surprise that the month is packed with activities to keep you busy.

One of my favorites is the West Central Home and Garden Tour and Artfest on September 10 & 11. This event is held in Fort Wayne's West Central neighborhood, in the area bounded by Berry and Jefferson Streets to the north and south, and Ewing and Garden Streets to the east and west. I often drive by these historic homes on my way into and out of downtown, and I've wondered what is inside. The Home and Garden Tour is a wonderful opportunity for you to see!

Taste of the Arts- Food to Look Forward To

For a foodie like me, Taste of the Arts is a dream come true. Every year, in late August, Arts United transforms Main Street and the surrounding area into a regional festival celebrating the arts. The event features music, dance, fine arts, theatre, history, and local food. The proceeds raised fund arts and culture programs and organizations. There’s only one thing better than a food festival—one that also raises money to support organizations that improve the quality of life in our community.

During a recent lunch at The Golden I expected good food and a solid wine list, but what I found was even more. The Golden goes above and beyond to provide real, farm-to-fork food and cocktails in a fantastic location.

8th Annual Taste of the Arts Festival

In my humble opinion, the best of Fort Wayne can be summed up in one phrase and event: Taste of the Arts.

This free event happens at the end of the summer in downtown Fort Wayne on the street and garden area of Artlink and the Performing Arts Center and Museum of Art at 300 E. Main Street. Pretty appropriate locale for showing off one’s artistic talents, huh?
