1. Works In Progress Night
Thursday, Feb. 25 at 7p







The Philmore on Broadway is hosting an event centered around positive and innovative thinkers. Bring your work (even incomplete) to share with the group! Each artist will have a scheduled share time in which to perform and/or talk about their piece. Not an artist? That’s ok! Come anyway! Admission is FREE.

2. Down the Line
Friday, Feb. 26 at 8p


You can’t miss the original with its legendary classic-rock covers from rock-solid local bands! The successful Down the Line concert series celebrates 10 years of putting the best bands from Fort Wayne on the Embassy stage, it should be a fun night for everyone!

3. Murder Mystery Overnight
Friday, Feb. 26 at 7:30






You get to spend the night at Science Central and try to solve a murder mystery, learning about science and forensics in the process. Who doesn’t think that sounds cool? This is a family friendly event — children 6 and up are welcome with an adult.

4. Young Frankenstein
Friday, Feb. 26 at 8p








I saw this show last weekend. LOVED IT. I highly recommend going. The cast is wonderful, the songs are fun, the choreography is on point, and the story is everything you’d want it to be. It was also hilarious.

5. YLNI Winter Farmer’s Market
Saturday, Feb. 27 at 9a










Spring is almost here! In the meantime, grab some fresh and unique produce, meats, baked goods and homemade crafts in an urban setting. It’s perfect.

6. Fort Wayne Home and Garden Show
Saturday and Sunday, all day.







Get your Spring Fever on while browsing the over 600 vendors participating in this year’s events. There will be exhibits giving you ideas for both outside and inside your home, as well as educational seminars throughout the weekend.

7. Cinema Center and the Oscars From Mars
Saturday, Feb. 27 at 6p







Dress up, participate in live and silent auctions, Oscar trivia, music, food provided by Club Soda, beer and wine, and a FREE screening of the Oscar Nominated short films. There’s also a tribute to David Bowie. It’s the best night ever.

8. Art and Yoga
Saturday, Feb. 27 at 7p










“Indulge in a sensory experience for the physical, mental, and emotional level as we share our love for community, space, and beauty.” Okay. Great. Sign me up. There will be a flow yoga session followed by an art show.

9. Pawject Runway
Saturday, Feb. 27 at 6p

Related  Build the Fort at the YLNI My City Summit!







It’s a fashion runway show were dogs are styled in adorable and creative ways, where you get to eat great food and drink great drinks and all the money goes to a wonderful cause. I love Pawject Runway.

10. Fort to Flint Water Benefit Celebration
Sunday, Feb. 28 at 6p










The #FortToFlint movement has been happening around our city. Bar 145 has been a drop off site for water donations, and Sunday night is the night to celebrate! They will be recognizing all of the donors who have stepped up to make a difference and take any final water donations. Have some fun with live DJs and entertainment!

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!
