Parades Will Line the Streets, and Of Course, Fun Will Ensue During Mardi Gras Galveston

At Mardi Gras Galveston, the extravagance found in Texas’ largest Mardi Gras celebration starts with the beads! More than 3 million beads will be thrown at Mardi Gras Galveston and that’s just the beginning of the elaborate parades, headliner performances, family events, feasting and other festivities that come with hosting Mardi Gras island style.

Watch all your favorite Mardi Gras parades (including the Mystic Krewe of Aquarius, Krewe Gambrinus and Knights of Momus Grand Night Parade) from a balcony party on the Strand! Balcony parties include admission into the Entertainment District, access to the balcony party with cash bar and music and a VIP view of the Mardi Gras festivities!

The Island’s 108th Mardi Gras celebration is expected to draw more than 300,000 attendees for 30+ concerts, 22 parades, 20 balcony parties, and five elegant masked balls. From the classic revelry found in the heart of Galveston’s historic downtown district to electronic dance parties and family-friendly events and parades, this island-style Mardi Gras has plenty of personality.

Admission is $25, however admission to the entertainment district is FREE for children 12 years or younger accompanied by a parent or guardian. Seawall parades and festivities are free to attend.
