The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum will once again host its annual FREE concerts at Heritage Square in downtown Wichita. The 2021 Heritage Square Concert Series will be happening over the noon hour every Wednesday this September. There’s even a bonus concert this year on Saturday afternoon, September 4.
The concerts are free! Bring your lunch to enjoy along with some live music in a great outdoor setting.
It’s such a fun event! Until I attended one of these free lunchtime concerts, I had never even seen Heritage Square Park. But it was awesome, with a gazebo, pretty landscaping, and nice places to sit.
Add in some of our best local musicians and let me tell you – this is one of the coolest events going on in Wichita. (Plus, it’s free!) Be sure to make the time to spend your lunch break downtown if you can. I know you’ll love it as much as I did.

Where to Park
The museum is in the old Wichita City Hall building – the one with the cool clock tower on top. It is on Main Street, directly across from the old library.
There’s plenty of free and metered parking nearby. You can park for free in the WaterWalk lot, which is just a short walk away from the Historical Museum, or you can use the metered spots along William or at Century II across the street. Meters are cheap; if I remember correctly, each dime pays for 30 minutes of parking.
Here is a map that shows the location of Heritage Square, as well as the paid and free parking available.
Heritage Square is accessed through the historical museum. The free concerts will take place every Wednesday in September over the lunch hour, beginning at noon.
About the Museum
For more than 80 years the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum has worked to collect, preserve and educate through the interpretation of our local history. Over the years the Museum has featured an encyclopedic range of exhibits telling stories using artifacts – material culture bearing tangible evidence of the past. Accredited by the American Alliance of Museums since 1972, the Museum is one of America’s finest museums and a tremendous community asset.
The Museum has occupied the Original City Hall building since the late 1970’s when Heritage Square was created as a companion feature by the Junior League of Wichita. Heritage Square is accessed through the Museum.
