FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) — Rock the Plaza is coming back after all.
The Allen County Public Library announced Thursday that Rock the Plaza will return in August for a 3-week run. The free event is held on the outdoor plaza of the downtown library.
Earlier this year, the library said Rock the Plaza was not going to take place in 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns, but those concerns have since dwindled.
“We know that a lot of people were disappointed by our initial decision back in April to cancel. Now that COVID-19 positivity rates are much lower and the vaccine is widely available we felt more confident that we could host Rock the Plaza without jeopardizing the health of our community,” said Stephanny Smith, Director of Community Engagement. “No one is more excited about this than the library’s team at Access Fort Wayne and the volunteers who produce the event. Normally it is a year-round planning process for Rock the Plaza and they managed to pull this together within weeks.”
Here’s the Rock the Plaza lineup:
El Camino Hot Tub
Sunny Taylor Band
The Harp Condition
Accidental Blues Band
Catfish Dave P
Fort Wayne Funk Orchestra
