Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo
June 28

We are excited to combine TWO amazing programs, Onboard Fort Wayne AND Meet Me @ 5:05, for an evening at the Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo.  Even better is that we’re partnering with their “Rock & Roar ” event for adults ONLY!  Attendees will have access to the zoo while also hearing talented bands from Fort Wayne’s local music scene.

Location: Fort Wayne Children’s Zoo
Tall Rabbit Cafe + Community
November 21

Located just south of downtown Fort Wayne, this coffee shop experience provides meeting and gathering spaces with many accommodations in a vintage, rustic throwback decor, giving a subtle nod to the Tall Rabbit’s namesake, Chief Blue Jacket. Tall Rabbit was his nickname. It’s got a cool vibe and a place you’ll be happy to know.
