The Fishers Summer Concert Series hosted by Fishers Parks & Recreation will return in June with a refreshed venue, new show times and local and national performing acts. The free concert series includes performances Tuesday and Friday evenings presented by IU Health Saxony, and Wednesday lunchtime concerts presented by Meyer Najem.
This will be the first full concert season in the newly renovated Nickel Plate District Amphitheater, 6 Municipal Dr., Fishers, which reopened in the fall of 2018. New features include a larger stage, an improved sound system and a gradual hill toward the back of the lawn to improve visibility for concert-goers. To ensure that concerts are inclusive for all, sidewalks were widened for enhanced accessibility and additional accessible restrooms were added in a new 700-square-foot Pavilion south of the Amphitheater.
Friday night show times have been changed from 9 p.m. to 8 p.m. based on feedback from concert attendees. Another change is Wednesday lunchtime concerts will alternate between adult and children’s performers.
