Featuring some of the best shrimp gumbo the Gulf Coast has to offer, the Shrimp Gumbo Cook-Off will be held in the Historic Strand District beginning at 10 a.m. on Saturday, September 23, 2023.
Visitors to the festival will be able to purchase a Gumbo Sampling Cup in advance for a limited time only. This ticket will sell out!

Professional teams from some of Galveston Island’s famous restaurants will also be selling various dishes for public purchase.
