Signature Events

The most memorable events continually come from the imaginative, resourceful minds that define DPWPR.  DPWPR led the creative charge that recaptured Galveston’s “Golden Age of Mardi Gras” with Mardi Gras! Galveston - today Texas’ largest and most acclaimed Mardi Gras celebration. Internationally inspired themes produced grand-scale artistic productions each year, most notably the famed Galveston Arches, a ceremonial installation by seven nationally and internationally revered architects. For the opening of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) Audrey Jones Beck Building, DPWPR reached all Houstonians, building awareness of MFAH’s expansion of space and status as the nation's sixth largest art museum.  In every venue, from private social and stakeholder events to grand citywide celebrations, DPWPR’s innovation and precise execution delivers deliberate marketing results beyond expectations.  At the newly constructed Reliant Park, Reliant Stadium Day attracted more than 40,000 newcomers and extensive media coverage. George R. Brown Convention Center’s three-day grand opening drew 45,000 to an open house, 1,000 to the black-tie gala and 150,000 spectators for fireworks and a parade. The Buffalo Bayou Master Plan was unveiled to 6,000 attendees at Blue Bayou:  An Evening of Moonlight, Music, Films and Fireworks; and Sesquicentennial Park Phase II launched with highly celebrated interactive activities.
