A Shrimply Marvelous Festival

September 03, 2018

Simply purchase an official Gumbo-Tasting Cup, and sample as much as you wish, or can hold! Festival events include a Gumbo Cook-Off and Gumbo Tasting, the Galveston Island Shrimp Festival Official 5K Fun Run, a Strand Merchant Walk-About, vendors, and the Awards Ceremony later at Saengerfest Park.

One of everyone’s favorite events of the festival is the Lil’ Shrimp’s Parade, where participating kids always have a ball marching in their own parade. The Lil’ Shrimps Parade takes place September 29 at 3:00 p.m., so join the crowd lining the parade route, and be sure to catch plenty of beads! Don’t forget that the Gumbo Stroll is offered but optional when purchasing your ticket. For details and tickets, click here.
