Summer Nights

Talent runs deep in Upstate New York, and we are dedicated to highlighting gifted musicians and outstanding craft beverage entrepreneurs. Wind down your day with great local bands and fantastic craft beverages at some of Rochester’s most popular entertainment locations. 

Funds raised from Summer Nights help support EPI and its programs and services that support children and adults with developmental disabilities lead the life of their choosing. Learn more about the impact of your donation by reading Kirk’s story.


Admission is FREE for all Summer Nights and no advance RSVP is necessary. We only ask that you consider making a $5 donation at the door and spread the word about EPI services. Oh, and bring friends!
