Schedule for Wednesdays at the Square in New Orleans

Wednesdays at the Square is a free concert series in New Orleans that benefits the Young Leadership Council. New in NOLA writer Elizabeth highly recommends this event as a cool, free thing for newcomers.

Food and drinks are for sale at the event.


The YLC’s Wednesday at the Square free concert series kicks off Wednesday, March 6, with a performance from guitar man Anders Osborne, whose latest release is the “Three Free Amigos” EP – a laid-back, six-song acoustic jam featuring guests including Johnny Sansone and Billy Iuso.

The free, 12-week program, which also offers a bazaar of local food, drink and craft vendors, continues through May 22, with its closing headliner to be announced May 8; confirmed performers so far include boogie-woogie piano woman Marcia Ball, the Bucktown Allstars, Irvin Mayfield, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk and more.

Food and drink tickets can be purchased in advance
