Welcome to The Charles Fort Wayne (Formerly ‘The Shiloh’), and Thank You for Thinking of Us!

Our new website is: www.TheCharlesFortWayne.com.  Here, you will find the most up-to-date information about The Charles Fort Wayne (The Shiloh).   The most commonly asked question is about our menu.  At www.TheCharlesFortWayne.com you will find a printed menu, but you are not limited to choosing only from the printed menu.  Our Professionally-trained Chef delights in meeting with couples to personalize the menu to your tastes and budget.

(The) Charles Fort Wayne (The Shiloh) is the most inclusive venue in Fort Wayne for banquets, weddings, receptions, rehearsal dinners, bridal showers, dances, brunches, seminars, fundraisers, company parties and many other social occasions since 1970.

Hosting special events in our comfortable, spacious and affordable accommodations, we can provide space for up to 450 guests in the West Hall and 325 in the East Hall.  Each wing has a completely different personality; lending themselves to capturing a special vision with most themed events. Paved parking, nearly four acres of landscaped yard, and a beautifully-landscaped outdoor wedding garden provides endless opportunities for almost any occasion.

Our East Hall, currently being remodeled (2017) features aged-brick walls, glazed concrete and natural hardwood flooring, private courtyard and a Bridal Suite in a versatile ‘Industrial Chic’ look that lends itself well to European, Industrial, Shabby Chic or Modern Contemporary Decor.  The East Hall also has a private Courtyard for those romantic evening events.

Our West Hall features it’s own Bridal Suite, just in time for the 2017 Wedding Season!

Imagine individually customized and prepared cuisine for your event. With our dedication to freshness, taste and portions designed to be enjoyed by the most discriminating of palates, catering takes on a new meaning with The Shiloh.

Lively, professional entertainment, decoration and coordination resources can be coordinated to aid you in creating a nearly effortless but totally unforgettable memory.

Outdoor events are hosted in our new, romantic gazebo by the lake. Inside or out, The Shiloh has the right venue for your unforgettable event.

Heirloom moments are our goal. Our philosophy is simple: Provide our guests with quality food and unparalleled service and we create memorable and lasting relationships. Please review the following material as a guide only; keeping in mind your event is special and is tailored to your exact needs and desires.

Annalynn Garden

Annalynn Garden is a unique and natural outdoor landscape consisting of several water features, botanical and other natural amenities. The garden is truly a ‘work in progress’ as we commit to add plants and features regularly to enhance its appeal.

We built the garden with special weddings and cocktail parties in mind! The stamped concrete patio will accommodate up to 185 chairs while even more can be seated in the lawn. If the weather becomes an issue, we can often move the entire event indoors with little to no interruption or inconvenience to the scheduled event.

Annalynn Garden is separate from The Shiloh; it is not included in the rental of the facility and is available with a separate reservation only.

*Applicable only when garden is not left as it was prior to rental; this includes cigarette butts, beverage and food containers and any decoration supplies that are not removed and/or biodegradable.

Please inquire with management to see our full menu, policies and terms. Availability and  all pricing is subject to change without notice. Pricing in our print menu, available from our management only, is considered most current.
