Thanks to all participants and guests for making this another successful HFWC event! Huzzah! Lords, ladies, knights, squires and serfs take over Historic Fort Wayne once again during our annual Medieval Days event. Come see how folks lived, ate, camped and fought. Demonstrations include armored knight duels, archery, hatchet throwing, knife throwing, cooking and dancing. A fun event that's been hailed as "a real-life Game of Thrones."
Yes, we said Base Ball. Along with the old spelling comes the old rules and vintage uniforms. Come watch the Early Risers play Greenfield Village's Lah-De-Dah BBC at the fort. You'll even see spectators in period dress! Join the fun. Free admission!
Back by popular demand, "Tours After Dark" takes you through the chilling recesses of the D's favorite fort. Expert paranormal storytellers reveal the legends and tales you won't hear on our regular tours. Sure to be a spirit-filled evening of adventure for all!
Historic Fort Wayne regular operating hours are every Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4pm, often with longer hours during our many special events. Guided tours are available every weekend and weekday tours are available by appointment.
Historic Fort Wayne Coalition is the volunteer organization responsible for much of the maintenance at the fort. We're a non-profit dedicated to preserving Fort Wayne's history and the legacy of those who served here during its 128 years of operation.
We've got some unique items in our online store, just for you or the history-lover in your life. Our shopping cart is safe and secure so order with confidence. Every cent of profit goes toward the fort's day to day maintenance.
