About the Revel

Our Beginnings

The Red River Revel Arts Festival began in 1976 as the Junior League of Shreveport’s Bicentennial gift to the citizens of the region. From traditional Cajun cuisine to deep-rooted music and hand-crafted art, the Revel offers a vast experience through activities, entertainment, food, and local traditions.

The People of the Revel

The Red River Revel is administered by a Governing Board of 21 members representing the sponsors and the general community; it is facilitated by an Executive Director, a Festival Production Committee of 9, and 250 volunteer Chairmen.

Additionally, 2,500 community volunteers help implement the festival.  The Revel features fine arts, food booths run by non-profit organizations, arts education programs, exhibits, and music and performing arts programs on multiple outdoor stages.

What We Are

Our nine-day festival attracts more than 80,000 people annually to honor the history and culture of visual and performing arts.  Our goal is to provide the general populace a ‘Celebration of the Arts’ that brings the finest in visual and performing arts experiences to our area.  The Revel is designed to be primarily educational in nature, entirely non-commercial, non-political, non-partisan and non-sectarian. We strive to deliver an amazing week of art and music education and entertainment for kids, teens and adults to enjoy.
