Join us for a celebration of the people, places, and partnerships that make Downtown Fort Wayne such a great place to live, work, and play. This will be a night to honor the hard work and dedication that made 2015 a success while turning our focus to the future!

2. C2G Music Hall: The Accidentals

Thursday, January 28, 8pm


These young musicians have quite the impressive resume so far … and they’re just getting started. I think it’s going to be a great show, but also some pretty great inspiration for young people to follow their dreams.

3. Anomalisa Opening and Discussion

After the screening, there will be a short discussion led by Matt White, Animation Instructor at University of Saint Francis, and local animator Lyndy Bazile.

4. Together Alone

Friday, January 29 at 8pm
Saturday, January 30 at 7pm AND 9pm


Together Alone is, on the surface, a representation of the decay throughout the city of Detroit. Performed by d.Ance.Kontemporary. Should be great!

5. Winterval

Saturday, January 30


I hate winter, but I LOVE Winterval! There are so many fun things to do! Check out the program!

6. Juice Jar Quarterly Cleanse Event

9. Chase the Chill Scarf Bombing

Sunday, January 31 at 10:00am


What is a Chase the Chill Scarf Bombing? An annual scarf bombing event that distributes scarves in public places so that those in need, regardless of income and without any qualifiers, can help themselves.

10. Two Plays on a Bench 

Friday, January 29 and Saturday, January 30 at 7:30pm


Early in their careers, two of America’s greatest playwrights each started with the idea of putting a pair of men on a park bench. And in both cases theatrical brilliance was created. This is the last weekend to check out the show!
