For 46 years, Dickens on The Strand has remained one of Galveston Island’s favorite events with parades, entertainers, musicians, special events, and more. It has also been the backdrop for those looking to start their own history as a one-of-a-kind venue for vow renewals and weddings.

We look forward to welcoming you on stage for your special moment, surrounded by family, friends, town criers, and even Queen Victoria. This year debuts a host of new packages for consideration throughout the weekend, many of which include everything from cake to photographer. For more information on these opportunities, contact Gina Marano at 409-765-3401 or by email.
