Saengerfest Park is situated in the Strand National Historic Landmark District of downtown Galveston. It is named after the 19th-century singing contest of the same name. This 5,000+ square foot venue is the perfect place to celebrate your wedding, birthday, or graduation. Located near amazing food, hotel accommodations, and convenient parking, it’s one of the most centrally-located Galveston wedding venues, and it’s filled with historic charm. 

The stage on-site is perfect for your band or DJ, so you can dance the night away. An old-fashioned English phone booth makes it feel like you’ve been transported to historic London. The park also features a giant chess set that the Mitchell family brought over from Europe. Challenge a friend or loved one to a game of life-size chess.
