Summer Nights Live Band Cam




The Embassy is pleased to announce that Summer Nights at the Embassy will begin its sixth season on Wednesday, June 2 and continue for 15 weeks, wrapping up on September 9. The events run from 5 to 9 p.m., with music starting at 6 p.m.

This season, the Embassy welcomes back larger crowds (capacity of 200 at the first event with the hopes to increase as the series progresses) and eliminates the virtual component. Instead, the organization will feature a web cam that will broadcast every Wednesday during the entirety of the event to encourage the community to come downtown and support the Embassy, performers and catering partners.

Summer Nights continues the tradition of highlighting and celebrating local musicians in the Yergens Rogers Foundation Ballroom. Local food vendors join each event for the entire series. A cash bar and concessions are available as well. A favorite feature is access to the Parkview Health Rooftop Patio where patrons can see Fort Wayne from a spectacular vantage point while enjoying a drink or food and soaking in the beautiful weather alongside friends and loved ones.

Single tickets are $5. Purchase tickets at the STAR Bank box office or through

A Note about Embassy COVID-19 Protocols: Masks are recommended and encouraged for patrons and guests. Social distancing rules of 3 feet should be followed at all times; seating charts and floorplans are designed to accommodate this guideline. All events have limited capacity. The Embassy has thorough protocols and staff training in place to reduce exposure to COVID-19. The organization has designed one-way traffic patterns, developed paperless and touchless interactions whenever possible and follows rigorous cleaning and sanitizing schedules. Patrons are asked to assess their health before arriving and stay home if ill, experiencing symptoms of COVID-19 or if they are in a high-risk category. While the Embassy works hard to reduce exposure to COVID-19, the public is assuming the inherent risk of possible exposure.
