2016 North American SCRABBLE Championship

Fort Wayne is excited to host the North American SCRABBLE Players Association as they compete in the 2016 North American SCRABBLE Championship! This is the first time this fun and exciting event will be held in Fort Wayne this August 5 - 10 — and we are ready to celebrate!

Attending the event as a NASPA member?

Fort Wayne is delighted to be hosting this prestigious event and we can't wait to show you all of the great things we have to offer! In Fort Wayne you'll find top-notch dining at one of our 500 restaurants - many of them within walking distance of the Grand Wayne Convention Center in downtown Fort Wayne and great entertainment. Plan to spend some time outdoors after renting a kayak from Fort Wayne Outfitters, visit one of our amazing art galleries, indulge in a little shopping at one of our malls or specialty shops - your options for fun are endless in Fort Wayne.

Bringing the family with you? Make sure to check out the top-rated Fort Wayne Children's Zoo. Don't let the name fool you - it's a great stop for adults as well! Rent a bike and check out the town from our over 80 miles of connected trails. Plan a visit to Science Central and end the day at Skyzone or Lazer X. You're all in for a great time!

Be sure to also check out our Events Calendar for all the great events going on during your stay, including a night of comedy from the legendary Jim Gaffigan. Get tickets here
