The 2020 Heritage Square Concert Series is still happening on Wednesdays this September. The Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum will host its annual FREE concerts at Heritage Square in downtown Wichita, but with a 2020 twist.
The concerts are still happening at lunchtime and they are still free (unless you want to purchase a boxed lunch). But admission is limited and you need to contact the Wichita Sedgwick County Historical Museum to reserve your spot.
You will want to make your reservation as early as possible, because the seating outside in the Square is limited and will probably fill up quickly. The good news is that we have five Wednesdays in September 2020.
To make a reservation, you can call the museum at 265-9314.
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 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 make the time to spend lunch downtown if you can. I know you’ll love it as much as I did.
Get Lunch or Bring Your Own
If you like, you can reserve a boxed lunch when you call the museum office to reserve your spot. In order to get lunch, you need to call before noon on the Tuesday before the concert. The boxed lunches are being provided by Siena Tuscan Steakhouse inside the Ambassador Hotel.
Or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.
Where to Park
The museum is in the old Wichita City Hall building – the one with the cool clock tower on top.
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.
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 paid and free parking available. Meters are cheap; if I remember correctly, each dime pays for 30 minutes of parking.

About the Museum

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.
