47th Revel entering final weekend with food & fun
The last day to attend this year’s arts festival is Sunday, Oct. 8
SHREVEPORT, La. (KSLA) —The 47th Red River Revel is going strong into it’s final weekend!
Hundreds of people have gathered at Shreveport’s Festival Plaza to enjoy a host of food and drinks, art and live music.
“It’s really exciting because it’s a huge festival for everyone to come out and show their talents,” patron Klaire Duffy said. “We have everything here. Dance, singing, art.”
Not only does the arts festival afford a good time, a local artist says it’s also a good way to get exposure.
“It’s great, especially for a lot of artists who are kind of doing the small business thing themselves. It’s a great way to get your name out there, get your product out there. People see your art, they start following you and you build up a following of like dedicated and loyal patrons who love to support you and get your products,” said Nick Furlong, who owns Nix Art Studio.
The Revel has been a staple in Shreveport for decades.
“Well, the Red River Revel is in its 47th year. It means a lot to the citizens, it really does. People sort of take a lot of pride in it, and it’s unique to Shreveport. It’s been around a long time, and people have had many memories down on the riverfront,” said Logan Lewis, the Revel’s executive director.
The last day to attend this year’s Red River Revel is Sunday, Oct. 8.
