- West Central Home and Garden Tour and ArtsFest
The ArtsFest is part of the highly anticipated home tour in a neighborhood that was placed on the National Historic Register in 1984, with leafy trees and an easy going vibe, where the neighbors show off their unique homes to old house lovers.
Easy set up, drive up to your booth. Short hours. Good food from food trucks. Cool place to spend the weekend.
No specific deadline: until full. Fee $50

I'm posting these here because of my personal interest in the events. I moved to Fort Wayne last fall and am a judge for the Fort Wayne Arts Festival and my new home is in the West Central neighborhood. If you do one of these shows I'd love the opportunity to meet you and will probably have a party on my front porch on Saturday night and you are invited. What do you think?
