7. Get Fit Fort Wayne Expo

Sat, January 23, 10am – 8pm
Sun, January 24, 11am – 5pm


Does anyone else find it a little ironic that the Get Fit Expo is the same weekend as Beer and Bacon Fest? Maybe? There will be lifestyle seminars, interactive activities, health and fitness screenings, and everything you need to get fit and healthy in the new year! You probably need to check it out if you spent your Friday night drinking beer, and eating bacon and circus snacks.

8. YLNI Winter Farmer’s Market

Sat, January 23, 9am – 1pm


We love the Winter Farmer’s Market. Fresh and unique produce, meats, baked goods and homemade crafts in a cultural setting.

9. Harry Potter Day at Sweets So Geek

Sat, January 23, 10am – 9pm
 YOU GUYS. HP themed desserts, a new chocolate, the debut of Sweets So Geek’s version of Pumpkin Juice, costume contests and discounts, and a TRIVIA CONTEST. Pay your respects to Alan Rickman and stop by Harry Potter Day.

10. Hope Arthur Presents The Core in Collaboration with Mikautadze Dance Theatre and Saitnkini-Productions at the Blackbox Theater

Sat, January 23, 8pm – 10pm
The event features a prototype of an interactive arts sculpture, called The CORE, which stands for Cultivating Oneness Reinventing Expression. A constant work in progress, The CORE’s aim is to be a visual representation of the complexity of the human spirit. It’s going to be awesome.
Remember, this isn’t all Fort Wayne has to offer. Check out our events calendar, and get out and have some fun this weekend! We can’t wait to see you around our city!
