Join PBS Fort Wayne for Explorer Day at Parkview Field!

This free, family-friendly day will encourage your little Explorers to have fun while learning. Explore 30 booths from local businesses and non-profit organizations with a focus on children and young families with hands-on activities to keep the spark of curiosity and learning alive during the summer months.

Kids can take their picture with a PBS mascot and PBS Fort Wayne’s Ryder, plus other local mascots. Hands-on activities give kids a chance to make and fly a rocket…play games, sample different educational opportunities in our community, win prizes and more! From the arts to sports, science and music, there will be something for every child to enjoy at Explorer Day.

Admission to this special event is free, as is parking. Parking will be available in the Parkview Field parking lots.

Gates open at 10am… We’ll see you there!

PBS Fort Wayne is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of children through curriculum-based events and programming.
