Patrons browse records at Wooden Nickel Records during Record Store Day in 2017. The celebration will return this year on April 13.

FORT WAYNE — The North Anthony Corridor Group invites the community to celebrate the 12th annual Record Store Day April 13 at Wooden Nickel Records, 3422 N. Anthony Blvd.

Record Store Day recognizes the unique culture surrounding independently owned record stores.

Wooden Nickel will host a full day of activities from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Bands will perform throughout the day, and guests can enjoy free cookies and coffee. Free prizes and goodie bags will also be given away, including several pairs of tickets to Clyde Theatre shows.

Attendees can purchase a “Vinyl Rocks” limited edition Record Store Day T-shirt and Wooden Nickel will donate $5 per shirt to the Community Harvest Food Bank.

Additionally, the North Anthony Corridor Group will sponsor a beer tent with Old Crown Coffee Roasters providing the beer from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. The tent will also feature performances from bands. The Sol Kitchen food truck will be on site for guests to grab a bite.

Wooden Nickel will also host celebrations at its other two locations on North Clinton Street and West Jefferson Boulevard. The record stores will have several hundred vinyl releases coming out on the day of the event.
