Young Leaders of Northeast Indiana (YLNI) is proud to announce that two popular summer events will once again take place in downtown Fort Wayne.

The Living Fort Wayne Concert Series is back on May 31, June 21 and August 2 at Headwaters Park West along the St. Mary’s River. In its fourth season, the concert series celebrates local musicians, local food trucks, and our downtown rivers. The concert series will include the kick-off to Friends of the River’s new canal boat on May 31 and is part of Make Music Day Fort Wayne on June 21. All ages are welcome and admission is free.

The YLNI Farmers Market returns for the season each Saturday from May 20 to September 9 at 302 East Berry Street. The market offers fresh local produce, plants, meats, baked goods, and unique homemade crafts. Every vendor is local, coming from Allen or surrounding counties. Live music and children’s activities will provide entertainment throughout the summer. More than 1,000 people visited the market each Saturday in 2016.

“YLNI is excited to host two summer events that will attract thousands of residents and visitors to downtown Fort Wayne,” said YLNI President Stephanie Veit. “The concert series continues to grow each year and offers a unique, live music experience along our rivers. Our farmer’s market has become a Saturday morning destination for many people. It was recently named a top 10 farmers market in the state of Indiana, and we’re incredibly proud of that.”
