111th Mardi Gras! Galveston Returns in 2022

Last Updated: December 1, 2021 by Galveston.com | Trip Planning, Events


After being cancelled in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Galveston Island’s 111th Mardi Gras celebration will return to the Historic Galveston Strand District in 2022 from February 18 through March 1. Mardi Gras! Galveston, the third largest Mardi Gras celebration in the United States, is expected to draw more than 350,000 attendees for two weekends of live concerts, parades, balcony parties, elegant balls and new festive additions.

Tickets are now on sale at www.mardigrasgalveston.com for general weekend admission and balcony access. Musical headliners have also been finalized for the festival’s concert lineup. These include Three Doors Down, Matt Stell and Siggno.

Ball High Teacher and Students with Beads

A portion of the festival’s proceeds will once again benefit charitable causes such as The Sunshine Kids, Shriners Hospital for Children, Galveston Education Foundation, Texas A&M Maritime Academy and The Firefighters Children’s Parade. New for 2022, festival organizer Yaga’s Entertainment has launched “Beads for Needs”, a bead recycling program whose goal is to get Mardi Gras beads out of the trash while giving students from Ball High School’s Life Skills Program the opportunity to build a business from the ground up and become self-sufficient.

Finally, submissions are open for the SC Inman Mardi Gras! Galveston 2022 Official Poster Contest. The poster contest is an annual artistic competition open to any US citizen 16 years or older. Contestants are asked to submit an official Mardi Gras! Galveston poster design. The winning poster will be reproduced as a commemorative poster to be released as part of Mardi Gras! Galveston 2022. The winning artist will receive a $1,000 award. If the winning artist is a high school student, the student will receive a $500 award, and their high school art department will receive a $500 award. Submissions will be accepted until Jan. 13, 2022.
