This summer, Riverfront Fort Wayne offers you the opportunity to teach, learn, draw, color, plan and build with chalk as your medium and Promenade Park as your canvas. Each day starting on June 15, lasting through the summer (except holidays), we will have new opportunities for you to engage with your neighbors (following social distancing guidelines) from 2 p.m. – 8 p.m. We also have weekly themes coordinating our activities. Come find us in the blue Riverfront tent for instructions and supplies, and get ready to CHALK IT UP! (a temporary replacement for regular Riverfront programming.)

Daily Schedule:

Sundays: Sundays are all about wellness. Move, jump, spin, and play.

Mondays: Each Monday, we explore literature—physically. Use the park to write your memoirs, craft a story, or walk through a new book.

Tuesdays: Do you think you can’t play games six feet apart? Think again. We’ll be giving you new ways to game your way through the park each Tuesday.

Wednesdays: If you like to ask hard questions and try your hand at giving the answers, come to the park on Wednesdays where we will be engaging in The Great Conversation.

Thursdays: Thursdays will keep you dancing through life: follow step charts, learn to read music, join a dance off, or more.

Fridays: Learn to see Promenade Park through a new lens: science. We’ll teach you about the biology, physics, astronomy, engineering, mathematics, and technology of Promenade Park every Friday.

Saturdays: Every Saturday, artists of all ages and abilities are invited to turn chalk into art—together.
