IJA Festival Shows

Shows 2019

Get ready for a phenomenal week of shows and entertainment at the IJA Festival 2019 in Fort Wayne, Indiana! Ranging from the world class line-up of the Cascade of Stars, to the raw and hilarious nights of the Renegade Show, we promise to keep you entertained. Read below to see the full schedule of shows, venues and prices. Show tickets for The Anti-Gravity Juggling Revue, Go with the Flow Juggling Show, World Championships of Juggling, and Cascade of Stars are all included with the purchase of a full event package. Prices outlined below indicate the ticket prices when purchased at the festival or at the door. Tickets for all shows at the Embassy Theatre can be bought anytime during regular box office hours at the Embassy Box Office, and for two hours before curtain time each night.

There is no chance we will sell out the 2,477 seats at the Embassy, and all shows are General Admission.

The Embassy Theatre box office is located at 125 West Jefferson Blvd., in downtown Fort Wayne, directly across the street from the Hilton Fort Wayne at the Grand Wayne Convention Center.

The box office is open Monday-Friday 10am-6pm, and opens two hours before showtime, at 5pm, for the incredible Cascade of Stars show on Saturday night. The box office phone number is 260.424.5665. More information and a map is available on the Embassy website.

If you want to pay additional online ticketing fees, you can buy tickets through the Embassy box office website. We advise you to skip the additional online ticketing fees and simply walk up to the box office to buy your tickets on-site anytime during the week until curtain time each night, and you will not incur any additional online service charges. Again, there is ZERO chance we will sell out any show.

We offer half-price adult tickets to all shows with a valid Indiana photo ID. Like all other Embassy show tickets, they will be sold exclusively through the Embassy box office.

For the “extra” shows at the Grand Wayne Convention Center, those tickets can be bought on-site in the gym at the IJA desk during registration hours, and at the door before the show. Seating is limited, so everyone should buy their tickets as soon as possible.

Pricing for all show tickets is here.

Besides all the great shows, you can purchase daily gym passes, spectator passes, and tickets for our extra shows being held at the Grand Wayne Convention Center at 4pm each day, festival t-shirts, and more at the IJA Registration desk, located in Convention Hall A of the Grand Wayne Convention Center, between 9am and 4pm daily, and until 3pm on Saturday.
