Galveston Island Beach Revue

PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO JULY 31 / AUGUST 1. WE LOOK FORWARD TO WELCOMING THE PUBLIC BACK TO THIS YEAR’S EVENT.

JULY 31 & AUGUST 1, 2020
Celebrating 100 Years of the Galveston Beach Revue!

Based on Island events from summer seasons past like the Pageant of Pulchritude and Splash Day, the Galveston Island Beach Revue was resurrected into a contemporary two-day, family-friendly event in 2009. The Galveston Island Beach Revue continues to grow each year through events, contestant participation, and attendance and is officially the City of Galveston’s “Kickoff to Summer” event.

The Revue features events Friday and Saturday culminating in the Bathing Beauties Contest. The contest itself has become a must-see event as locals and tourists of all ages swarm the beach and seawall for a glimpse at the vintage swimsuits, parasols, and of course the “world-famous” Bathing Beauties themselves.

NEW IN 2020 – THE SWEET SUMMER SOIREE

The very first Beach Revue was held in 1920 and we’re pulling out all the stops to celebrate. Galveston Historical Foundation invites you to the 1880 Garten Verein dancing pavilion for a night of sweet treats at a specially curated dessert bar, live performances, craft drinks, and more.
