Bahá’ís of Fort Wayne are preparing to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of the Báb, Herald of the Bahá’í Faith, on Monday, October 28, 2019.

Plans underway include a special program for the entire family featuring devotions, music, crafts, a video presentation and a light meal. The event will take place at Franke Park's Pond Pavilion beginning at 6:00 PM.  Everyone is welcome to attend!

Prior to the program on October 28, 2019 the local Baha’i community will plant a commemorative Bald Cypress during a ceremony on Wednesday, October 9, 10:00 AM at Bloomingdale Park.  This tree will take its place next to the first tree planted two years ago in commemoration of the 200th Anniversary of the Birth of Baha’u’llah. 

Inspired by the life and teachings of Bahá’u’lláh, Founder of the Bahá’í Faith, millions of people worldwide celebrated the 200th anniversary of His birth in October 2017.  In October 2019, people will celebrate the bicentenary of the birth of the Báb, whose revitalizing message prepared the way for the coming of Bahá’u’lláh.
