SHREVEPORT, La. (Ark-La-Tex Weekend) - A new all-day festival celebrates LGBT+ musicians, drag queens, comedians, and the arts and you’re invited.

There’ll be plenty of food and drink with service from The Seventh Tap and food trucks Mi Meza Latin Cuisine, Island Vibez, and La Costentia Taqueria. Browse and shop the QUEST Arts Market.

Get in the Halloween spirit by participating in the Costume Contests. One is in the morning and the other is at night. The main action, though, is the music and drag queen performances scheduled. From their press release, “International drag queen and “Dragula” TV star (Season 4 Top Finalist & upcoming “Dragula: Titans”), HoSo Terra Toma will perform with specially curated costumes just for QUEST.

Cure for Paranoia, a soul-infused hip-hop band will return for their second appearance in Shreveport. Local comedian Em Emerson will perform standup as well as host a Halloween costume contest. Local drag performers, led by Lemon Pop, will grace the stage with lip-syncing and dance performances. Local DJs That Girl DJ and DJ Faze will close out the night with a live DJ battle to dance the night away.”
