This is going to be great! Fidelity Bank and High Touch Technologies, in partnership with The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum, will once again host FREE lunchtime concerts this September in downtown Wichita.
The Carnegie Concert Series will be held in Heritage Square, which is behind the Carnegie library building at 220 S. Main Street. The free concerts will take place every Wednesday in September over the lunch hour (11:45 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.)
Wichita food trucks will also be on site during the concerts so you don’t have to go hungry, or you can – of course – pack a lunch and bring it along!
Since this is an outdoor event, do be sure to follow updates from the sponsoring organizations to make sure you hear about any weather related changes or cancellations.
There’s plenty of free and metered parking nearby! Here is a map that shows the location of the free concerts, as well as the parking available.
All of the performers have roots or ties here in Kansas as well as fans across the country. Read more about each band and their connections to Wichita at the Wichita Carnegie website.

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 and have lunch. Add in some of our best homegrown bands and let me tell you – this is one of the coolest events going on in Wichita. (Plus, it’s free!) Be sure to go if you possibly can. I know you’ll love it as much as I did.
Thanks to Jessica A. and others who made sure I saw the news about last year’s free lunchtime concerts so that I could share it with everyone!
