THE GRAND POSTPONES EVENTS SCHEDULED FOR THIS WEEKEND

GALVESTON ISLAND, TEXAS - Events scheduled at The Grand 1894 Opera House for this weekend have been postponed and rescheduled due to concerns about high winds and potential flooding from Hurricane Harvey. The scheduling for both Dixie’s Tupperware Party and ArtWalk at The Grand has been affected by the storm.

Dixie’s Tupperware Party, originally scheduled for Saturday, August 26, 2017 at 8 pm, has now been rescheduled for Friday, November 10, 2017 at 8pm. Dixie’s performance at The Grand has been one of the most anticipated events of the summer.  We’ve all been waiting for the laughs as well as the chance to buy some Tupperware! Current ticket holders have several options regarding rescheduling of the performance, and are encouraged to contact The Grand’s ticketing staff at tickets@thegrand.com or 409.765.1894 for a review of ticketing options. Ticket sales for the rescheduled date of November 10th are also currently available.
