For the last 20 years, Fort Wayne has seen very little in the way of New Year's Eve entertainment. Not since the city's Bicentennial Celebration in 1994 (almost 20 years ago) has there been a large-scale New Year's Eve Celebration in Fort Wayne. That changes this year with Heartland's Swingin' Singin' New Years Eve. Our New Year's Eve celebration will feature the Heartland jazz vocalists and big band orchestra for a dynamic, live musical show with dancing, drinks, food and a champagne toast at midnight! Get dressed up and take this opportunity to make downtown Fort Wayne the place to be this New Year's Eve!
