Parkview Field, 1301 Ewinig St., Fort Wayne
Solfest is making a long-anticipated return on August 14th, 2022 from noon-10pm at Parkview Field. Although the event won’t be taking place at Fox Island this year, proceeds will still go toward a special ADA trail project currently in the works at the park. We have the joy of welcoming back several excellent bands that have delighted Solfest audiences in the past, coupled with some great new artists to provide 10 hours of fantastic local music! Our main stage will have amazing performances by URB, T Zank, Grateful Groove, Unlikely Alibi, Los Galaxy, Wailhounds, and Dead Man’s Dance. The acoustic stage will highlight even more local talent: Phil Shurger with Gracie Jo, Jessie Mae, Dan Dickerson, Sunny Taylor, Andy Paquette & Shelly Dixon, and Esther Rose. Fort Wayne Maker’s Market will be bringing dozens of local vendors with a large variety of handcrafted items that appeal to all ages. The splash pad will be running so make sure you bring your swim gear and towels! There will be lots of children’s activities including face-painting and giant inflatables, and Pyroscope Entertainment will provide fire shows, LED spinning and Juggling throughout the night. Food and Bar will be provided by Parkview Field and admission is $15, children 10 and under FREE. Chances at free park passes and other giveaways upon entry. Live art raffles will also benefit Fox Island. Connecting with nature and each other is so important! We hope to raise awareness about local treasures such as Fox Island and come together to support amazing projects that encourage wellness in our communities.
