Galveston Island makes us Texans feel closer to the heart of the ocean than ever before. While the island has many things, one of our favorites is all of the delicious seafood. A mouthwatering festival with endless seafood is coming to Galveston in just a few weeks, and it's exactly what we need before fall officially begins. Grab your beach gear and make sure your stomach is empty, 'cause you'll be leaving full.
Galveston Island Shrimp Festival will be less than an hour away from Houston from Friday, September 27 through Saturday, September 28. Just because you might be in San Antonio, Austin, or Dallas, doesn't mean you have an excuse to miss this amazing festival. Tickets start at only $12 for the next two weeks, so the time to buy them is now! Who knew eating like a king or queen could be so cheap.
The Gumbo Stroll Ticket is the cheapest option, allowing you to try endless samples for just $12. From there, you can get a shrimp dinner for $20, participate in the 5K for $46, and party like a VIP for $50. Everything that comes in your package is on their website when you buy your ticket, so you'll know exactly what you're getting.
Seafood festivals are a great opportunity to bring all your loved ones together and bond over some delicious grub. And this is no different! If you're looking for more foodie events, Texas has no shortage of them.
