Downtown Fort Wayne

Spend your weekend in downtown Fort Wayne this summer – where you can eat, play, stay and explore – right in the heart of it all!

Downtown Fort Wayne is home to dozens of locally-owned restaurants, a thriving arts scene, and access to numerous outdoor adventures, but this summer it is also home to live music every weekend night.

Downtown Live! brings music to the downtown streets every weekend this summer! Downtown Live! is a series of free performances every Friday and Saturday evening in June, July, and August.


Each Friday night this summer, you can enjoy music as you dine and stroll through The Landing.


Each Saturday night, Downtown Live! will come to you from a series of rotating Downtown locations such as the Porch off Calhoun and a couple of surprises to keep you on your toes.

In addition, many downtown businesses will participate with deals and special events – and be sure to check out the outdoor beer garden at The Landing Beer Company. And, the first Friday of every month will feature a headlining act or activity: including local favorites such as Alicia Pyle Quartet, Rosalind and the Way, and Latin music night featuring Melisa’s Latin Beat and open salsa dance lessons.

Stay tuned to for updates to the schedule.
