Red River Revel Arts Festival Celebrates 35th Year

For 35 years the Red River Revel Arts Festival has attracted thousands of people who love art, food, music, and fun. This year’s event is now taking place through Saturday October 9.  This eight-day festival is held at downtown Shreveport’s Festival Plaza on the banks of the Red River.

The featured attraction at the Revel is the variety of art on display and for sale by more than one hundred juried artists. It’s the perfect place to find unique jewelry, paintings, acrylics, clothing, pottery, photography, wood work and much more. This year will offer 40 new artists.

Another popular activity at the Revel is eating. Many festival-goers count down to the event in anticipation of eating their Revel favorites, most of which are prepared by local non-profit organizations. From the Muffaletta pizza and turkey legs to the Italian ice and funnel cakes.

This year the 50-foot Ferris Wheel is back and will be in a new location overlooking the Children’s Arts Education Area and the Red River. Children’s events include Artist for a Day, “Twister” Tot Tent, Architecture Alive, Salto Trampoline and the Rock Climb.

Revelers can enjoy local bands and regional Revel favorites throughout the eight-day festival. The eight-day Reveler Pass allows unlimited admission throughout the festival for one low price.

Shreveport-Bossier is Louisiana's Other Side – a mix of wide-open Texas spirit and spicy Cajun attitude. They took the best of big Texas and the tastiest of Louisiana and blended it into their own brand of entertainment and fun.
