The Mudbugs – Live music, Free, Open to the public, All ages
Wednesday, September 6th from 11:45 AM to 1:15 PM The Mudbugs offer up a lively bit of Louisiana-style Cajun and Zydeco care of Wichita, Kansas. Their added layers of country, swamp pop and rockabilly come alive in sets featuring both genre classics and “Cajun-ified” rock/pop numbers. The Mudbugs have found national fame, including an appearance on Garrison Keillor’s “A Prairie Home Companion.” Let’s go Mudbuggin’ in Heritage Square. Fidelity Bank has partnered with High Touch Technologies to host The Carnegie Concert Series at Heritage Square. Heritage Square is located behind the Wichita-Sedgwick County Historical Museum and the Wichita Carnegie Library at 220 S. Main Street.
William Street between Main and Market will be closed during this event to accommodate a lineup of food trucks especially for the concert series. The vendors include: The Flying Stove, Funky Monkey Munchies, Little Lion Ice Cream, and Hot-2-Trot Hot Dogs. Additional food trucks will be easily accessible to concertgoers at the nearby ICT Pop-Up Urban Park from 11:00 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Website http://www.wichitacarnegie.com/events-2017/
