The festival will also feature cuisine from local vendors and a variety of beverages sold as part of the summer fundraiser for Algiers Economic Development Foundation. The weekly concerts will resume next Wednesday, July 11, with George Porter Jr & his Runnin Pardners and Sound Man Presents.

Wednesdays on the Point began five years ago in an effort to draw visitors to Algiers Point during the slow summer months. Since its inception, the series has grown exponentially and is expected to draw more than one thousand guests each week. This year's lineup includes various musicians and bands including Amanda Shaw, Brass-A-Holic's "Go-Go Funk" Band, Sunpie Barnes and the Louisiana Sunspots and Chief Bo Dolis Jr. and the Wild Magnolia's Mardi Gras Indians.

Founded in 1719, Algiers Point is one of the oldest neighborhoods in New Orleans. "The Point" as locals call it, is located directly across the Mississippi River from the French Quarter.
