‘Wednesday at the Square,’ the YLC’s free 12 week concert, starts up March 6

Written by
We are right on the cusp of one of our favorite seasons IntheNOLA. The time’s gettin’ ready to change making the days longer, the weather’s getting’ warmer, snowballs stands are gonna be opening soon, and the crawfish are getting’ bigger and cheaper. New Orleans, springtime is upon us, which means we’re gettin’ ready for festivals galore!
First up on the list is one of our favorites, the Young Leadership Council’s (YLC) annual 12-week concert series, Wednesday at the Square presented by the New Orleans Saints and sponsored by Republic National Distributing Company and the Downtown Development District.
Wednesday at the Square features several well known performers, The Bucktown All-Stars, Irvin Mayfield and Kermit Ruffins together, The Mother Hips, The Revivalists, on top of a host of many other acts,” explained Curry Smith, Executive Director of the YLC. Wednesday at the Square offers the chance to see plenty of local and regional musicians and I think New Orleans residents really enjoy these activities. Being in the middle of the week, it’s really is a local’s festival.”
In its 14th year, Wednesday at the Square kicks off the first concert of the series on Wednesday, March 6 with local musicians Anders Osborne and The Colin Lake Band at Lafayette Square from 5-8pm. And every Wednesday after that until May 22, there’s no reason to go home right after work with the likes of Marcia Ball, The Meters, Dumpstaphunk, and more playing right in your backyard.
YLC's Wednesday at the Square |
“As you know, we New Orleanians love anything that involves food, music, and drink and when we can get all three of those together, it’s a pretty happy time for everybody. That’s just one of the great aspects of living in the city and especially in the spring with the weather as good as it typically is. It’s an excuse to get out and enjoy the city and the cultural offerings that we have, not just in terms of the musical acts that are featured, but also the art and food vendors that are out there. We have concessions at the concerts every week and we also have visual artists that get out and promote their work. It’s a big celebration of what makes New Orleans such a unique place to live.”
Wednesday at the Square is the Young Leadership Councils’ single largest fundraiser, raising money for the many community service projects that the YLC organizes every year. “We manage eight community service projects and we really encourage our members to get involved in the community and give back and improve the quality of life in the greater New Orleans region. Wednesday at the Square is our primary source of funding every year; the concessions help us make sure that we can effectively do what we do.”
It’s no secret why we live in the best city in the world. While everyone else in the country will be heading home on a regular Wednesday at 5:00, New Orleanians will be dancing and drinking with family and friends. On a Wednesday! Can’t get no better than that!
