FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) Sweetwater Sound is working to build an outdoor pavilion to host musical events.
The company has filed a request with the city’s Fort Wayne Board of Zoning Appeals to construct a 200-foot-by-40-foot pavilion on just outside its building at 5501 U.S. 30 West. Our partners in news at The News-Sentinel reported that the BZA will consider the request next month.
Sweetwater Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer John Hopkins told The News-Sentinel the pavilion could hold about 2,000 people.
Sweetwater is planning its annual Gearfest two-day music festival, set for June 17-18. If approved, the pavilion would offer needed space for the ever-growing event, which began in 2002.
