Summer Celebration Returns To McMillen Park

The celebration will also include live music from several local bands, information booths from local non-profit organizations and food trucks by local vendors.

The Summer Community Celebration was founded in 2017 to create an annual neighborhood unity event for families in the Fort Wayne community. This year the event will be an avenue to promote mental health and community togetherness, after two hard years of isolation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As always, the event will emphasize the importance of fathers being involved in their children’s education.
