The Wild Texas Shrimp Festival in Galveston

If it’s September, you can count on us getting ready to celebrate shrimp, music, and friendship at the Wild Texas Shrimp Festival held in Galveston’s historic district, the Strand, September 23-25. There’s only one thing we Texans like more than a big ole party, and that’s a big ole party celebrating delicious food, and this family friendly festival is one of our favorites! Wild Gulf Texas Shrimp is better than any shrimp you may find anywhere else on earth…can you think of a better reason to celebrate it?

The End of the Heat

Texas summers can be sweltering, and Galveston Island’s shrimp festival helps celebrate the end of the heat and the beginning of cooler times. The party starts with a Fried Shrimp Dinner Party and free live music on Friday night and continues into the weekend with more music, more shrimp, and a 5K for those who might need to run off the extra calories they have consumed over the course of this tasty festival! At 3PM on Saturday, the Galveston Shrimp Company’s Lil Shrimps parade is an event that can’t be missed; kids from 2 to 92 will love catching beads and watching the floats roll down the parade route. Try to restrain yourself from moving to the beat of the marching bands performing for your pleasure—we dare you! Sunday fun day brings more shrimp, music, and adds some children’s activities to guarantee your kids will want to come back for this Galveston shrimp festival next year!
