Wednesday at the Square, sponsored by the Young Leadership Council of New Orleans, presents a series of free outdoor concerts by well-known New Orleans and Louisiana artists that will liven up your spirits and maybe even get you into a dancing mood. Elevated above the crowd on a big stage, bands perform a wide variety of local musical styles, including jazz, rock, funk, swamp pop, Latin rhythms and more. In addition, you will be treated to the sounds of some of New Orleans' most famous brass bands. You can bring your own chairs or blankets and sit on the ground. The front of the stage is reserved for dancing.
There is no admission charge to the square. Food and beverages – alcoholic and otherwise – are available for purchase – and proceeds help pay for the event.
The concert series runs from late March through mid-May every year.
