Visit Galveston Event Calendar Guidelines

Event calendar submission requirements:

  • Events must occur ON Galveston Island
  • Events must be open to the public (no members-only events)
  • Events must have a universal appeal to locals and visitors alike

Events that are unlikely to be approved include (but are not limited to):

  • Religiously-Focused Ceremonies or Functions
  • Political Events
  • Business and/or Networking Events (including trade shows)
  • Some Seminars, Lectures and Workshops
  • Deals, Discounts, Coupons or Promotions for Businesses

All event submissions are approved at the discretion of Visit Galveston.

How to make your event stand out

  • Include a detailed description of the event and any important details
    • Many visitors to our website may have never visited Galveston before. Remember this when writing your event description.
  • Provide a promotional image from the event
    • JPG or PNG
    • High-resolution images are preferred, cropped at a 4:3 ratio if possible - think landscape or horizontal (800x600px minimum) Note: if the image is not at this ratio or a similar one, it will be cropped automatically and visitors may miss out on your full image.
  • Flyers and graphics are not ideal, unless presented in the preferred ratio
  • Select the most appropriate event categories (you can select more than one!)
  • Fill in as many fields as possible on the form below

Event submission approval/ denial process

Once your event is submitted, it will be reviewed to ensure that it meets the above guidelines prior to being posted on the website. Visit Galveston's staff reviews submissions and reserves the right to approve or deny events at its own discretion.
