Headlines for Texas' Largest Mardi Gras

February 04, 2017

Country music star Stoney LaRue and chart-topping alternative rock band Sugar Ray are scheduled to headline performances at this month’s Mardi Gras festivities in Galveston, which goes live on Friday, February 17th and spills over into Saturday. Every year our city is proud to host the most ambitious Mardi Gras celebration in the state of Texas.

Famed for producing superhits like “Every Morning,” “Someday,” and “When It’s Over,” Sugar Ray is a veteran of the entertainment industry with over thirty years of rock heritage. Galveston will get a head start on the bead-throwing madness, beginning a few days before Fat Tuesday itself. This leaves room for a host of related activities, including Electric Mardi Gras, an area dedicated to non-stop DJs and laser light shows, and the all-new Fiesta Gras, featuring Tejano music and a performance by La Mafia on February 19th.
