The Young Leadership Council, a largely volunteer group of energetic New Orleanians, presents the Wednesday at the Square concerts, which begin at 5:00 every Wednesday from April through June feature great music. The concerts return again in the fall, usually starting in mid-September and going through early November.

Food and Fun:

From booths around the perimeter, local restaurants will serve some of their signature dishes, and of course, your favorite beverages will be available. As if all this isn't enough, regional artists in the Art Village will display their works and crafts for sale.

Lafayette Square:

The concerts are held in Lafayette Square, just off Poydras Street between St. Charles Avenue and Camp Street. They start at 5 p.m. and to to about 7 or 7:30.

2012 Spring Event Schedule:

The 2012 concert schedule starts on March 14th and run through May 30th. Here's the rest of the schedule.

The 2012 Fall Event

These concerts start again in the fall with another great schedule. The fall concert series is called "Harvest the Music" and is also given by the YLC. The money earned from the sale of food and drink go to the Second Harvesters Food Bank in New Orleans. The 2012 fall concerts usually start in late September. This year's schedule isn't out yet.
