If you missed The Fort Wayne Indoor Fall Bash Parking Lot Party, then you missed out on one of the best events ever to hit this side of Waynedale since ET last showing there! Sunday September 16, 2018 we took over the brand spanking new Clyde Theaters parking lot to share our message of Art, Community, Music, Culture, Food, Friends, Family, Bikes, and Skateboards.
The past 2 years the fundraiser has been held at the Lawton Skatepark in downtown Fort Wayne. This year, with the hard work and relentless work ethic of a man determined to make his dreams a reality The Clyde Theater founder, Rick Kinney was able to pull off a 9 Million Dollar Upgrade to this one-of-a-kind gem on the city’s South East side. Rick and I had a conversation about 5 or 6 years ago about doing an event like this, and sure enough here we were doing this event in real life!
Over the past 5 years Dan Butler and I have been engaged and working on relationships with people right here in our community. Folks who believe in the type of work we are doing and most importantly, the young minds we are helping mold by providing a unique place like the Fort Wayne Indoor Skatepark for humans all over our entire region. I’m talking about partnerships with great local companies that help make a difference in the community where we live, work, and play.

Live Art Demonstration by Northside Galleries
We added a brand new experience to this years party in the form of a live art demonstration. The four artists that you see pictured below, spent most their time on this Sunday painting this beautiful canvas artwork, each having a role in all 4 canvases. They were essentially playing musical chairs with each canvas. Once all the painting was over we held an auction where 4 lucky folks got to take home a piece of history created that very same day! Thank You to all 4 of these radical human beings for volunteering to show some Fort Wayne Indoor love!
