Organizers cancel BuskerFest 2020


FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - You'll have to wait until next year to see street performers walk the streets in Fort Wayne.

That's because the Downtown Improvement District (DID) pulled the plug on this year's BuskerFest 2020 due to concerns about social distancing amid the pandemic.

Due to the high attendance and the way the event is arranged, the DID didn't think social distancing protocols could be implemented.

Organizers are now planning to bring the celebration back in June 2021.
