Siege of Fort Wayne 1812

June 10 - June 11, 2023

Saturday: 10 am – 5 pm
Sunday: 10 am – 4 pm

The confluence of the Three Rivers was once the front line in a battle that could have decided the fate of the entire Northwest Territory. The Native Confederation allied with the British clashed with the American forces to decide the fate of one of the last US outposts on the frontier. Had Fort Wayne fallen, Great Britain would have controlled the entire western border of the United States.  This weekend at the Old Fort reenactors from across the country will recreate the Siege of Fort Wayne during the War of 1812. Experience the battle! Observe musket and cannon demonstrations. Visit with period artisans and enjoy children’s activities.

Always check for any updates or schedule changes.
