108th Annual Mardi Gras! Galveston Celebration

Friday, February 22, 2019

Galveston’s 108th Mardi Gras celebration begins Friday, February 22nd and continues until March 5th, or Fat Tuesday. Both weekends are packed with parades, parties and, of course, beads. The 10-day event is expected to draw more than 300,000 attendees for masked balls, balcony parties, parades and concerts, including headliner Pat Green. This island-style Mardi Gras has plenty of personality. There’s the classic revelry found in the heart of Galveston’s historic downtown district, where the bulk of festivities take place, and also family-friendly events and parades along the Seawall.

The Mardi Gras! Galveston website has all the latest information on parades, entertainment, and fun! For details on road closures, safety, and transportation, please visit our Mardi Gras community news flash!
