Since 1969, The Three Rivers Festival is an annual 9-day celebration of the Fort Wayne community. Events include an arts fair, children's activities, senior's events, national acts, concessions, a marketplace and a parade which adds up to fun for the whole family. Three Rivers Festival draws nearly half a million visitors each summer that come together to have some fun, savor tasty treats, and catch up with old friends, all while making new friends and creating great memories! As a not-for-profit entity, Three Rivers Festival generates its revenue from sponsorships, vendor participation fees, ticket sales, gate admission at the Festival Plaza, souvenir sales, and refreshment sales. The Festival strives to keep events at a free or minimal admission fee to keep the festival accessible to the community! Three Rivers Festival offers everything from food to fun. Brings your family and friends and enjoy Food Alley, Art in the Park, the Bed Race, the Three Rivers Festival Parade, the Raft Race, Children’s Fest, and so much more! Reminder: Please do not bring your dog, cat, bird, ferret, snake, goat or emu to the Festival.
