Chardonnay, Cabernet, Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir. If your taste buds respond to these names, you’re in the right place — the Galveston Wine Festival.
This special festival showcases an amazing array of wines and live music around the island. Venues include Saengerfest Park, Hotel Galvez, BLVD Seafood, and the American National Insurance Company.
Travel through the world’s vineyards at the Grand Tasting, known for its endless and superb wine sampling. Galveston’s well-known chefs will be creating delectable small bites for you to enjoy while listening to live music.
Sip premium wines and spirits and taste savory small bites at the Premium Tasting, an exclusive event. Designed for the true wine connoisseur, premium wines (not available at other festival events) will be served to a limited number of attendees.
Join other wine connoisseurs and their families to race on an easy “there and back” route — past the varied scenery of Galveston Island. Start slow, build up speed along the Seawall, and cross the finish line with a commemorative glass of champagne waiting for you.
Cash parking lots are located at 21st and Market, 20th and Market, and 24th and Market. Shuttle service will be available from the Festival hotels.
Know that, for the 2021 Galveston Island Wine Festival, you must be 21+ to enter any of the events. IDs will be checked upon arrival, and everyone must have a ticket to enter the event(s). No refunds will be issued to anyone unable to enter.
