Botanical Roots Outdoor Concert Series

One of Fort Wayne’s best kept summer secrets is definitely the Botanical Roots Outdoor Concert Series. However, based on recent attendance numbers, word is definitely getting out. The concert series runs every Friday evening this summer until September 2. With three final shows this year, there is still time to enjoy a night out with your friends and family.

Each Friday offers a new musical style with a new artist. Don’t miss Gangstagrass (Bluegrass/Hip-Hop) on August 19, John Primer (Blues) on August 26, and Zion Lion (Reggae) on September 2.
