Join us as Galveston’s Historic Downtown Strand District is transformed into a melting pot of flavors! From award-winning cookers to backyard roux roughnecks you will want to get in early to try them all.
How It Works –Teams lining the Historical Strand District will dish out a sample of Shrimp Gumbo to festival attendees who have purchased an official Gumbo Stroll-Tasting Cup. Walk around and try countless samples for the 4-hour span, enjoy the live music & cold refreshments.
You will redeem your tickets for your cup at the Will Call area inside the Information Booth at 23rd & Strand. Will Call will open at 11am on Saturday, 9/26/2020. You can either print off your tickets and bring them to the festival, or just pull up the tickets on your cell phone to be scanned. The Gumbo Stroll begins at 12pm.
While tasting the teams’ gumbo be sure to vote on Best Team Showmanship! Don’t forget to turn your showmanship ballots back into the Main Info Booth! Note: Main Info Booth is located at Saengerfest Park at the corner of 23rd and Strand.
