Military drills and guard duty are also part of the soldiers’ daily duties. Visit with the soldiers. Witness what it is like to live in a frontier fort during the winter months.

Always check for any updates or schedule changes.

Admission is free to most Historic Fort Wayne events, however, freewill donations are gratefully accepted and help fund future events and activities at the Fort. Parking is available at Headwaters and Lawton Parks.
