Lagoonfest Returns To Texas Memorial Day Weekend

Splash your way into summer at Lagoonfest.

Lago Mar, the 12-acre lagoon in Texas City, is infusing super-soaked activities across a mile-length of shoreline this summer for its annual Lagoonfest. [Featured image: @serahcurran]

From May 28 to September 7, 10 am to sunset, Lago Mar is inviting you to take a dip in its 24-million-gallon turquoise pool. Soak up some sun in a private cabana, take a spin on a jet ski, or go for a run on the lagoon’s aqua course. Whatever water activity you can fathom, the lagoon’s got it; not excluding sailboats, stand-up paddle boards, kayaks, electric jet boards, and the largest floating obstacle in the United States of America (on a lagoon).

Since last year, the lake has upgraded many of its amenities ($2 million dollars’ worth) with elevated resort-style cabanas, increased beach seating and added food court plaza, expanded white sand beaches, and new bars and frozen cocktails.


The festival is also set to feature a variety of DJs and other live entertainment.

Given the circumstances, Lago Mar is taking extra precautions to ensure the safety of attendants at Lagoonfest. Such as frequent sanitization, no cash transactions, and temperature checks. Staff will wear masks, and visitors are encouraged to do so when not eating, drinking, or swimming.

Lagoonfest will be open from 10 am to sunset on Tuesdays through Sundays beginning May 28. Tickets are limited and are encouraged to be purchased in advance. Prices vary but start at $20 for adults with a $3.60 service charge.
