Downtown Shreveport

To take the pulse of a destination, the best place to check is the heart of the city – its downtown. From the 24-hour gaming action at riverfront casinos to engaging exhibits at local museums and galleries, downtown Shreveport offers one adventure after another.

Festival Plaza is home to many of Louisiana’s best annual festivals including Mudbug Madness Festival, Let the Good Times Roll Festival, and Red River Revel Arts Festival. These multi-day events offer various genres of music, great Southern food, and arts and crafts.

Experience a performance by the Shreveport Symphony Orchestra, learn about the constellations at Sci-Port Discovery Center or delve into the arts at Artspace. Stop in for a great cup of coffee or dine in the Red River District. Food, live music, entertainment, gaming and adventure – all are within reach.
