Mardi Gras! Galveston
Feb 23, 2019
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 along with hosting Mardi Gras island style.
The Island’s 108th Mardi Gras celebration, to be held February 22 – March 5, 2019, is expected to draw more than 300,000 attendees for 30+ concerts, 22 parades, 20 balcony parties and five elegant masked balls. And, this island-style Mardi Gras has plenty of personality. From the classic revelry found in the heart of Galveston’s historic downtown district, where the bulk of festivities take place, to electronic dance parties and family friendly events and parades, Mardi Gras! Galveston offers excitement everyone can enjoy.
