Fall Fun in Fort Wayne

Growing up in Fort Wayne, my family and I participated in many Indiana fall traditions. We picked apples at the orchard, trick-or-treated in the neighborhood, and visited animals at local farms.

As I’ve matured, my interests have changed and so has my community. I appreciate Fort Wayne for all of our beloved, long-established traditions and love nothing more than making new ones. Whether you want to experience the contemporary arts scene and enjoy modern cuisine or would rather peruse the History Center and take a stroll on some of the best trails for leaf-peeping in the area, there are so many ways to visit Fort Wayne this fall!
