About Fizz Fest 2018 - Craft Soda Festival and Winter Carnival

On February 10th, Downtown Fort Wayne will have even more fizz and pop at the inaugural Summit City Craft Soda Festival and Winter Carnival to celebrate artisan soda pop and raise awareness for Blessings in a Backpack. Resurrecting the days when soda came in a glass bottle and was sweetened with natural cane sugar, Fizz Fest showcases over 100 vintage and craft sodas to sample and purchase. The family-friendly event will also feature a myriad of old-time carnival games and live entertainment. Mission...

Blessings in a Backpack is a non-profit organization that feeds school children in the Fort Wayne who currently are fed during the week on the Free and Reduced Meal Program and are at risk of going hungry on the weekends.
