Everyone’s favorite spunky orphan girl is coming to Fort Wayne! Broadway at the Embassy is featuring the musical “Annie” this Friday night. I. Can’t. Wait.

It’s the last month for winter farmer’s markets! Head over to Wunderkammer to get your fill of local goods!

Head over to JK O’Donnell’s beginning at 5:30 for some drinks, followed by the Three Rivers Music Theatre presents: The Last Five Years. I’m excited about this one, it’s a little less expensive than some of the others. If you’ve been wanting to check it out, now is your chance!

7. OverBoost Car Show

Saturday, April 9 from 12 – 6 pm


Sweetwater is going to have some cool cars and food trucks to enjoy on your Saturday afternoon!

8. Shindigz National Soccer Festival

Saturday, April 9 at 7 pm









Confession: My boyfriend likes (lives, breathes, is obsessed with …) soccer. That’s why I know about this. And I pretended that I had no interest in going, but Indiana is playing Notre Dame at the University of Saint Francis field and that sounds pretty fun, actually. The website says there’s something for everyone, and food and a full service bar from Don Hall’s (if he had led with that, I wouldn’t even have pretended to not want to go).

9. Belle and the Strange and The Hope Arthur Orchestra at the B Side

Sunday, April 10 at 6:30 pm











This will be a great show! What else do you have to do on a Sunday afternoon than listen to a great music at a great venue? Nothing.

10. Giving Back Fort Wayne

Tuesday, April 12 at 4 pm






There will be over 40 local nonprofits represented at this volunteer fair! Come learn what’s going on in our community, and find ways that you can get involved!


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!
