We know that this is not a time for travel. Like communities all around the world, the people of Fort Wayne, Indiana are working together, making hard but necessary changes, and showing what truly makes Fort Wayne great—the hearts of our people. We’ll get through this as a community. And when the time is right, we’ll invite you back to visit #MyFortWayne.



Dear Visitors:

As it is around the country, multiple events in Fort Wayne have been cancelled or closed to the public. For up-to-date information, please check with the event organizer, or VisitFortWayne.com/events.

Because of the direct implications on the travel and tourism industry, we will continue to monitor the coronavirus, COVID-19, situation daily, and we are in contact international and trade associations, and the U.S. Travel Association, the national non-profit organization representing all components of the travel industry. 

We have also reached out to Allen County officials, offering to serve as a liaison to our tourism industry contacts. We are working with industry leaders to provide you with the facts and tools to respond to the situation.

Because the information is changing daily, we suggest that people stay up to date via these community resources:

The Allen County Department of Health: https://www.allencountyhealth.com/ 
The Center for Disease Control: https://www.cdc.gov/ 
Advice from the US Travel Association: https://www.ustravel.org/toolkit/emergency-preparedness-and-response-coronavirus-covid-19
Please let me know if we can assist you, as we all work together to respond to this rapidly changing community challenge.
Dan O'Connell
