2023 Summer Nights at the Embassy Lineup Announced

Fort Wayne, Ind. (May 10, 2023) – The Embassy is pleased to announce that the eighth season of Summer Nights at the Embassy will begin Wednesday, July 12 and continue for 8 weeks, wrapping up on August 30. These shows will be open from 5:30 to 9 p.m., with performers playing from 6:00 to 8:45 p.m. this year. The title sponsors for this year’s series are Sweetwater and the Surack Family Foundation.

Summer Nights continues the tradition of celebrating local musicians in the multi-level Yergens Rogers Foundation Ballroom with access to the Parkview Health Rooftop Patio where patrons can view the city’s spectacular skyline while enjoying a drink, food or conversation with friends. A cash bar and food/concessions are available as well.

Pricing will remain the same as it has been in previous seasons. All individual tickets will cost only $5 (plus any applicable ticketing fees). Tickets will be available at the STAR Bank box office (260.424.5665) or through www.ticketmaster.com and www.fwembassytheatre.org.

Flex passes will once again be available and can be exchanged for tickets in any amount for any of the specific shows. Flex passes will cost $30 (eight tickets for the price of six). Buying multiple passes is allowed.

Flex passes as well as individual tickets will go on sale Friday, June 2 at 10 a.m. (Flex passes will not be available for purchase after July 19.) While our community offers many free live music options, each $5 Summer Nights ticket directly supports Embassy Presents programming, education offerings and the upkeep and restoration of the beautiful and historic Embassy Theatre. As a nonprofit, the organization appreciates ongoing support.
