Celebrate Louisiana culture with the Red River Revel Festival!
Summer is nearly over and it’s time to get out of the air conditioning and out around town.

Running all nine-days, the musical lineup of the Red River Revel is going to be a strong showing this year. Mississippi blues-rockers Bishop Gunn are kicking off the festivities Saturday, September 28 with a nighttime concert.
