Named as one of the “10 Best Beaches for Families” by Family Vacation Critic in 2013, Stewart Beach Park is fun for anyone who wants to build sandcastles, splash in the water, or play beach volleyball. Visitors can also enjoy several fun events coming up.
Bucket Brigade Interpretive Beach Tours – Every Saturday and Sunday in May, visitors can take an informative one hour tour to learn all about Galveston’s marine and coastal ecosystems. If you can’t make it, this tour will also take place over the summer.
GCVA Galveston Grand Prix – On Saturday May 14, you can cheer on hundreds of volleyball players as they attempt to qualify for the USA Volleyball Junior Nationals. Games start promptly at 9:00 a.m.
During the spring and summer, the GCVA (Gulf Coast Volleyball Association) also hosts several tournaments at Stewart Beach that you can participate in or watch.
World Oceans Day Festival and Seaweed Art Contest – June 8th marks Galveston’s first World Oceans Day. It’s held in cities around the world, and those visiting Galveston can try interactive activities to learn about the complex relationship between the ocean, other ecosystems, and the human race.
The festival is at the same time as the Seaweed Art Contest that allows artists to submit works of art using seaweed or marine debris.
Both the festival and art contest will take place from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
