Verbatim: Announcing CurrentFortWayne.com – Fort Wayne’s new comprehensive Calendar of Events

Today, Visit Fort Wayne Foundation released a new website to serve Fort Wayne residents–CurrentFortWayne.com.
 
CurrentFortWayne.com is a comprehensive community Calendar of Events, providing information on sports, arts, entertainment and educational events to the community.
 
The calendar is built on Visit Fort Wayne’s robust system and will provide a single portal where an organization can enter their event once and it will be eligible to be included on our partner calendars including Visit Fort Wayne, Arts United, Downtown Improvement District, YLNI Living Fort Wayne, Riverfront Fort Wayne and others.
 
In addition, all community events will be featured on CurrentFortWayne.com, collected in one place for residents to discover.
 
On CurrentFortWayne.com, events can be sorted by category, keyword or date–making it easy for people to find the events of interest to them.
 
“We are delighted to present this comprehensive community calendar of events to the community,” adds Kristen Guthrie, Director of Marketing at Visit Fort Wayne. “We know that the #1 barrier to people engaging in community activities is that they aren’t aware of the events in advance. Promoting CurrentFortWayne.com to the community will help Fort Wayne residents engage with their community as they discover new events.”
