Celebrate Mardi Gras at an historic Galveston residence with food, fun and music at Menardi Gras at the 1838 Menard House on Friday, February 7, 2020.

Relive the good times of old when Galveston’s oldest residence, the 1838 Menard House, hosts Mardi Gras revelers at Menardi Gras.

The site of island’s first Mardi Gras celebration in 1853, the Michael B. Menard House invites partygoers for an evening of drink, heavy hors d’oeuvres, and live music by a New Orleans brass band.

In the spirit of Mardi Gras, attendees to Menardi Gras are encouraged to dress up with something festive and fun. Costumes are always welcome and the event will be outdoors, so consider that when choosing your perfect Mardi Gras garb.
