Join Artist Boat “Under the Stars & On the Prairie”

Join Artist Boat "Under the Stars & On the Prairie"

Last Updated: October 5, 2020 by Artist Boat | Nature, Food & Drink


Are you sick of all the craziness 2020 has brought and just want to relax? Come get a breath of fresh air at a relaxing night under the stars on a coastal prairie by joining Artist Boat for our annual fundraiser, Float the Boat! This year, we are excited to be moving this gala to a dinner series outdoors on the Coastal Heritage Preserve honoring Joe & Rebecca Jaworski. If the sounds of the grasses rustling in the wind on a nature walk isn’t relaxing enough, we will also have a captivating live painter and soothing live instrumental music. Gather your friends to get a table together and share a night to remember while watching the sun setting on the bay.

This six evening dinner series is designed to keep guests socially distanced and safe, but together, outside. With 54 guests per evening, this event is well below the allowable outdoor guest limit mandated by the City of Galveston. All Artist Boat staff, volunteers, and caterers will be strictly following best practices for CDC Considerations and Guidelines for Events and Gatherings.
