It has been about 10 months since I’ve had a good elephant ear or funnel cake, so what does that mean? It means that it’s that time of year in Fort Wayne…festival time! Fort Wayne is home to a festival nearly every weekend in June and July.
Whether you are looking for some fun activities for the kids, a cultural experience, live music or some great deep-fried food; we have you covered. And I don’t want you to miss any of the fun, so below you will find all the information you need for a fun-filled summer (and fall too)!
