The purpose of this event is to bring our community together to celebrate Fort Wayne, its local talent, outdoor environment, and local businesses. Each day, Fort Wayne is becoming a better place to live and it's time to acknowledge this by throwing a party on one of our beautiful rivers. Come and join us on The Banks at Fort Wayne Outfitters, August 13th, 2016 in celebration of this great town, its wonderful music, and our excellent urban outdoors.
