Three Rivers Festival organizers get ready for 51st festival

Local News

Each July more 50,000 people line the streets of downtown Fort Wayne for Three Rivers Festival, including the TRF parade.

This year’s theme commemorates “The Summer of ’69” when so many historic moments took place, including our first ever downtown Fort Wayne Three Rivers Festival.

The Lutheran Health Network Three Rivers Festival Parade will take place on Saturday, July 13 at 10:00 a.m. You can expect the classics like marching bands, classic cars and floats. Plus, the WANE 15 team will be walking in the parade.

The organizers of the festival have acquired a new ride provider. This will alter the time the rides open, but organizers promise a better experience. Kissel Entertainment is the new provider.

This year, time is being set aside at the midway for those with sensory challenges. From 3-5 p.m. on Saturday, July 13th, music and speeds will be turned down, and rides are free. The Midway will be closed to the general public during this time, and only guests with sensory challenges and their families will be allowed.
