A summertime tradition is back in Fort Wayne for another year. This is the 10th year for Lunch on the Square, which brings over 1000 friends, family members, and co-workers out on average each week. Lunch on the Square is held at Freimann Square every Thursday throughout the summer.
Attendees can enjoy live music while trying out many of the Downtown Fort Wayne eateries, including restaurants and food trucks. The event is meant to encourage people to support local business during the lunch hour. People can also bring their own lunch and just enjoy music on the square. This is a free, family-friendly event that is open to all ages.
Lunch on the Square runs from 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. every Thursday through August 30, 2018.
