The Spring Revel


In accordance with local and national guidelines, we have postponed The Paris Review’s upcoming Spring Revel from April 7 to a new date this fall. Planning is already underway for the rescheduled evening, and we look forward to being in touch soon with news. Please check back for updates.

The Paris Review is a not-for-profit foundation. The Revel is an important occasion for donations; its postponement means the delay of funds we depend on to keep words on our pages and our pages on the web. If you would like to make a donation to The Paris Review in advance of, or independent of, the rescheduled Revel, we welcome contributions through our shop site.

The Revel is one of The Paris Review’s oldest traditions—and its most anticipated. The event celebrates writers and writing and provides the core support necessary to carry on the vital work of the magazine. The Paris Review has become a beloved literary institution after sixty-seven years in publication, and the Revel brings together cultural leaders, friends and readers of the magazine, emerging and established writers, and devoted patrons of the arts for a legendary party.

Proceeds from the Spring Revel provide core support for The Paris Review Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to endowing the future work of The Paris Review.
