Mardi Gras at The Tremont House will have a little more maroon this year as the hotel transitions its famous Mardi Gras ball to a new event benefiting Texas A&M University at Galveston in memory of hotel owner and 1940 Texas A&M University graduate George P. Mitchell. In tribute to Mitchell, The George P. Mitchell Society of Texas A&M University at Galveston is now the beneficiary and host of this legendary party that had been presented by George and Cynthia Mitchell and the Mitchell family since its start in 1985. 

The A&M Mardi Gras Parade Viewing Party will take place entirely in the Tremont Ballroom and will include dinner, open bar, live music and a premier view of the Momus Grand Night Parade as it passes in front of the hotel. Guests will have the option to watch the parade from the ballroom balcony or on the street level in a gated viewing area.

The Tremont House is donating the venue, staff and food and beverages enabling all proceeds to benefit the school.

In contrast to previous years, tickets to the event are separate from the Mardi Gras hotel package and The Tremont House will be open to the public.
