Three Rivers Festival Parade Presented by Steel Dynamics: Better Together

One thing the past couple of years has taught us is that we are definitely 'Better Together'. After a two year hiatus, the Three Rivers Festival is thrilled to be bringing the Parade back this year and have the opportunity to celebrate our City, Patrons, Partners, and Neighbors! We are all better when we come together and the Three Rivers Festival is ready to celebrate that!

Each July, more than 50,000 of our closest friends and neighbors line the streets of downtown Fort Wayne to witness the floats, hear the bands, and celebrate our community at the official kickoff to the Three Rivers Festival. This year's Three Rivers Festival Parade theme celebrates the value of being Better Together. 2022 is a year to commemorate the togetherness that makes Fort Wayne, its people, neighborhoods, and businesses one of the best places to be! And, it's because we're Better Together! After two years, the parade we all know and love is back! You can visit the Three Rivers Festival website to learn more about the route, Grand Marshalls, times, etc.
