“We are incredibly grateful for the continued support of the New Orleans community, which allows us to bring back this event year after year,” Graham Williams, Wednesday at the Square co-chair, said in a release. “Wednesday at the Square not only acts as an important fundraiser for YLC but also plays a key role in our city’s culture and tourism. Between our musicians, vendors, volunteers and sponsors, community involvement is what truly makes this event so unique and rewarding.”

The concert series returned in 2022 after a two-year hiatus during the pandemic. Organizers say last year’s return drew crowds of more than 40,000 people over the span of the series.
