The Red River Revel has garnered considerable national recognition and was even featured on ABC's Good Morning, America! The Arts Festival is one of the Top 10 Events in Louisiana by Top Events USA. The Arts Festival is ranked as one of the Top 100 Fine Arts Festivals in the United States by Sunshine Artist Magazine. The Arts Festival is an official AAA Southern Traveler "Travel Treasure". The Arts Festival is ranked as a Top 20 Event in the Southeast by the Southeast Tourism Society. The Arts Festival is ranked as a Top 75 Event in North America by the American Bus Association.


Each year, the Revel unites people throughout the Ark-La-Tex to enjoy the arts and volunteer their time to make the Revel possible. If you would like to be a part of this award-winning arts festival, please consider volunteering your time.


The Red River Revel believes in supporting the community that has supported it for so long. We want our impact to have the greatest effect!


In addition to bringing in hundreds of visual and performing artists each year, the festival attracts thousands of out-of-state visitors each year. A Wysong Brand Solutions study estimates the overall economic impact of the festival to be more than $7.1 million annually. Marshall Marketing Research estimated that 20% of Revelers (approximately 36,000 people) come from outside the Shreveport/Bossier area.


Every fourth grade student from Caddo and Bossier Parishes experiences first-hand quality programming in the performing and visual arts. Our Arts Education Programs are specifically designed for the students to have the opportunity to work on the Louisiana Department of Education Content Standards in music, visual arts, theater, dance, history, and physical/health education.


Each year, the Revel brings people together from diverse social and economic backgrounds to make the festival a reality. Thousands of volunteers contribute nearly 120,000 man-hours in implementing the festival.
