Join Us For Mother’s Day Downtown

Downtown Fort Wayne is pleased to announce the return of its spring event for families of all ages to celebrate Mother’s Day Downtown on Sunday, May 13 from 11:00a.m. – 5:00p.m.

Free trolleys and event guides will connect you to great retail locations, restaurants, and Mother’s Day themed activities around Downtown.

“We’re so happy to see continued growth and engagement for events like Mother’s Day Downtown over the last few years, said Bill Brown, President of the Downtown Improvement District. “Mother’s Day Downtown is a great day where our fantastic businesses and organizations really roll out the red carpet for that special mom in your life. With new restaurants and retailers opening as well as new activities to enjoy, there’s always something fun happening Downtown!”

New This Year:

· The Arts United Center will serve as the Main Trolley Hub providing information, fun activities and more.

· Lutheran Health Network will be operating two LHN Mother’s Day Shuttles from 1pm – 4pm along the Trolley route for even more transportation capacity and convenience.

Guides which showcase trolley stops, activities, and parking suggestions will be available at participating business and sponsor locations starting Friday, April 20, and will also be available on the trolleys the day of the event. So make your plans, catch a trolley, drive, take a spring stroll or bike ride between activities and let’s celebrate Mother’s Day Downtown!

Mother’s Day Downtown is presented by your Downtown Improvement District and sponsored by: Lutheran Health Network, Fort Wayne Newspapers, The CW Fort Wayne, Majic 95.1/Fun 101.7, Arts United, Das Fort and The City Exchange.
