Downtown Shreveport is the Center of Entertainment, Dining and Fun

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. As a result of COVID-19 some events have been canceled or postponed. 

Experience underwater adventures at the Shreveport Aquarium, dinner and a movie at Robinson Film Center, hands-on science fun at Sci-Port Discovery Center or delve into the arts at Artspace. Stop in for a great cup of coffee at Rhino's in downtown Shreveport or get a craft cocktail at Fatty Arbuckles Pub in the Red River District. Food, live music, entertainment, gaming and adventure – all are within reach.
