Join us for a Special FREE Advance Screening of PBS Fort Wayne's latest documentary! This special evening will be held Monday June 3rd at the Auer Performance Hall of the Purdue Fort Wayne Music Center. 

This exclusive documentary is the product of a collaboration between PBS Fort Wayne’s Rob Rhodes, and Harvester Homecoming’s Ryan Duvall. Combining archival material with over 30 interviews, this documentary spans local history of Harvester from the 1800s to the present day. Through it all, thousands of hard working and talented people made Fort Wayne the “Heavy Duty Truck Capital of the World” and created one of the first commercially successful SUVs with the Scout. 

The screening on June 3rd will kick off at 5:30pm with several International Harvester trucks & Scouts parked outside, courtesy of Ryan Duvall. At 6:00pm, the doors of the Auer Performance Hall will open and Truck Town starts at 6:30pm, with a running time of about 2 hours.

Tickets, which are free, will be required for this screening event and are available now through the day of the screening — or while they last — at the Purdue-Fort Wayne box office. Seating for this advance screening will be on a first-come, first-served basis.

Tickets are also available by calling the box office at 260-481-6555, or, in-person at the Box Office at the Purdue Fort Wayne Music Center.
