FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Fort Wayne’s NBC) - The Allen County Public Library (ACPL) announced that its free summer concert series is returning this year.

The Rock the Plaza concert series features thirteen free concerts that showcases a total of 51 local bands, ACPL officials said in a media release. The 2020 event was called off due to COVID-19 concerns, and they held a shortened season in 2021.

The shows are set for every Saturday from June 4 to August 27 at the Main Library Plaza in downtown Fort Wayne between 6 and 10 p.m. They encourage attendees to bring a blanket, chair, or food if they wish. Pint & Slice will be on site every week selling food and beverages. Pets are not allowed.

For those who are unable to attend in person, concerts will air on ACPL’s Access Fort Wayne, and will also be live-streamed on ACPL’s YouTube channel.
