Art Walk

For over 25 years, the Galveston Arts Center has organized ArtWalk on eight Saturday evenings each year in the heart of Galveston's historic district. ArtWalk takes place inside existing art galleries (both commercial and non-profit) and other spaces such as cafes and shops that showcase rotating art exhibits.

One of the Galveston Arts Center's largest programs, ArtWalk supports our arts community and connects a diverse assortment of local places to see, learn about and purchase original art.

Art Walk is approximately every six weeks.

Movie Nite on the Strand

Movie Nite on the Strand

You're in the mood to see a movie on the big screen, but you don't want to be stuck inside a stuffy theater. What to do? Thanks to the brilliant idea that is Movie Nite on the Strand, you can literally have your cake... or popcorn, and eat it too. Not only do you get to see some great movies, but it's also all FREE!

It's a free event, so refreshments are not provided, but it's guests are encouraged to get a bite to eat before the show starts, and there's obviously a lot of great restaurants on the Strand.

Saengerfest Park is a small square park located on the corner of 23rd Street and The Strand in Galveston`s Historic Strand District. Saengerfest Park is known for having a large, playable chess set, a large compass which can be used as a seat, wooden benches, an old-fashioned London-style phone booth, and a stage used for Movie Nite on the Strand.

The Bucket Brigade tours are offered Saturdays through May. Beginning Memorial Day Weekend tours will be offered Wednesday-Sunday throughout the summer. The 45-minute tours are held at 9:30 am, 10:30 am, 11:30 am, 1:30 pm, 2:30 pm and 3:30 pm.
