THREE RIVERS FESTIVAL (JULY 12 – JULY 20, 2024)

Junk Food Alley

Junk Food Alley is one of the Festival’s largest and most anticipated attractions. Food vendors participate locally and from all over the nation to offer festival fare – fried treats, elephant ears, popcorn, barbeque and much, much more. An average of 60,000 people visit Junk Food Alley each year. Junk Food Alley is open each day of the festival and is located next to Festival Plaza.

International Village

International Village is a two-day celebration of the many different cultures and heritages that are part of the Fort Wayne community! Stop by International Village at Purdue Fort Wayne on the last weekend of the Festival to experience the food, art, dance, culture, and traditions of those who have made Fort Wayne their home.

Emporium

Support local artists and crafters by shopping at the emporium! You will find unique food, jewelry, soaps, clothing, home decor, and more.

The emporium is full of innovative goods you didn’t know you needed, but won’t be able to live without after you see them!

Downtown Midway

The Three Rivers Festival Downtown Midway encompasses the tree-lined East and West area of beautiful Headwaters Park. With the backdrop of the river, the hint of the Plaza music, the scent of Food Alley, this is a popular, open area (no admission charge) for friends to meet and spend the day. Downtown Midway includes a blend of free displays and exhibits, carnival amusement rides, and budget-friendly attractions.

We wish to welcome community members with sensory challenges to come enjoy our midway during this special time frame. Kissel Entertainment will turn down the music and speed on the amusement rides during this time. Rides will be free to guests with sensory challenges and their families. Games and food will be available for purchase.

​The Midway will only be open to guests with sensory challenges and their families. The Midway will be closed to the general public during this time.
