Kickstart is a month-long celebration of all things fitness, arts, music, and definitely bikes that will help you kick off a great and healthy summer. Attend the Kickstart events to enjoy bikes and outdoor activities and celebrate the art, music and theater community in Fort Wayne. Throughout the month, there are great events that will focus on bikes, children's interests, and the arts.

This festival began in 2015 with the introduction of bike rack sculptures around the city, and other bike and fitness themed events. The festival continues this year with a focus on providing that promotion of health and wellness in the vibrant Fort Wayne.
