Texas Crab Festival – May 6 – 8 at Festival Park

Seafood lovers will delight in sampling crab specialties from several vendors.
Galveston Island Beach Revue – May 14 at the Seawall
The annual beach revue is almost an institution here in Galveston. Based on island events from seasons long past such as the Pageant of Pulchritude of 1920 and Splash Day, the beach revue was resurrected into a contemporary two-day, family-friendly event back in 2009. Since then, the revue continues to grow every year through contestant participation culminating in the Bathing Beauties contest and other fun events. It is the official “kickoff to Summer” event here in Galveston.
World Oceans Day – June 8th at Stewart Beach
While this is an “unofficial” day, people worldwide nonetheless come together to celebrate, learn about, and do their part to help our oceans. And also right here in Galveston! The festival draws vendors and participants from near and far as we recognize how important it is to keep the big waters healthy.
