Visit three locations each day to hear the unique sounds of each location’s historic instrument. Concerts are scheduled at the top of each hour over the course of each day’s events (e.g. if the concert time is 1-4 p.m., there will be concerts at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.) with approximately 15-30 minutes travel time between each location, depending upon the organist’s choice of music. Due to changing road closures because of the Three Rivers Festival and maintenance to Fort Wayne Streets, it is suggested that individuals determine the best route for their needs by visiting the websites for the City of Fort Wayne and the Three Rivers Festival.
