1. Next Women of Country Tour

Thursday, March 17 at 6 pm






Sponsored by K105, Jennifer Nettles will be at the Embassy, and she’s bringing some wonderful, talented ladies with her. It should be a great show, and yes, I know it’s country, but we do live in Indiana. Drive your truck downtown and check it out!

2. Gala Gone Wild

Saturday, March 19 at 7 pm








Not your typical gala. This should be so fun! There will be pop-up entertainment, dueling pianos, and fun performances. Snack on some hors d’oeuvres and enjoy the cash bar while you watch the out-of-the-box entertainment.

3. “La Fille Mal Gardee

March 18 & 19 at 7:30 pm

March 18 & 19 at 2:30 pm









Fort Wayne Ballet’s latest show. It’s about a young girl, her mother’s ideas of who she should love, and her finding her one true love. I’m excited about it, I heard it’s great!

4. Grassroots Baby Grand Opening










ATTENTION moms. There’s a natural parenting store in Fort Wayne. Did you know that? It was running out of Java Mama, but now it has its own storefront! Support these local shop owners who want what’s best for our babies and check out their grand opening!

5. Impractical Jokers

Saturday, March 19 at 7 pm and 10 pm









“Where’s Larry?” Tour is at the Embassy. We love the show, we should love the live performance.

6. WIT

Friday and Saturday at 7:30 pm

Friday late performance at 10 pm










I heard this show was amazing from several different people. They said they laughed, they cried, they had all the feels. It’s closing weekend, so I put it at the top of my to-do list!

7. Women Make Movies

Sunday, March 20 at 4pm and 8 pm




In celebration of Women’s History Month the IPFW Women’s Studies Program sponsors a showing of films created by women. It’s free at the Cinema Center.

8. FAME Festival

March 19 and 20 — Time varies





It’s a whole weekend celebrating local art from all ages. Check out the full schedule, there are lots of things to attend! The big children’s concert March 20 at 3 pm is always a good choice.

9. Easter Celebration

Wednesday, March 23 at 11 am







For $5 your child can go to Java Mama and participate in Easter Crafts and egg hunting, take photos with the Easter Bunny, and gain admission to the play area. Grab some coffee and a pastry and have a mid-week R&R session while your kid has some (cheap) fun!


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!
