Wapakoneta has a wide variety of local arts programming. Whether it's a Wapakoneta Theater Guild production, a high school musical, or a Concert in the Park, there is always something happening. You can visit a new exhibit at the Riverside Art Center, tour the Armstrong Air & Space Museum, or enjoy a first-run film in our historic 1904 theater with its spectacular marquee. During the summer, hardly a weekend goes by without a festival featuring local food, arts & crafts, fireworks, and great fun. On any given day, you can stroll through the antique shops and boutiques of our historic downtown, have lunch at a local cafe or coffee house, or feed the ducks and geese along the Auglaize River. Culture in Wapakoneta is relaxed and fun, and often involves someone you know.

Wapakoneta's location makes the short trips to more metropolitan programs and events convenient and easy.
