Celebrate Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando

The biggest party in Florida starts next month!  That’s right, Mardi Gras is coming to Central Florida with delectable eats, a colorful parade and live concerts! The Universal Orlando Mardi Gras celebration is a family-friendly version of the famed New Orleans bash that features Cajun-style cuisine, authentic New Orleans flare, a spectacular parade, and – on select nights – live concerts by a star-studded lineup of musical artists covering everything from pop and R&B to rock and disco.

For 12 select nights during the event, you can enjoy performances by nationally-recognized musical acts including award winning-multiplatinum selling Fifth Harmony, three-time GRAMMY Award winner NE-YO, superstar singer-songwriter Toby Keith and rock band Collective Soul.

The celebration also includes a uniquely themed nightly parade featuring festive Mardi Gras floats – complete with New Orleans-inspired music, dozens of colorful dancers and stilt performers, and more than one million beads. This year’s parade will feature six all-new Mythical Creatures Themed floats including, The Dance of the Dragon, The Flight of the Pegasus, and The Rise of the Garuda. All of the exquisitely detailed Mardi Gras floats are engineered by Blaine Kern Artists, the same company that has hand crafted floats for the iconic New Orleans celebration since 1947.

You can also enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard and performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.

The excitement of Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida or with an Annual Pass. Florida Residents can get up to three months free on Power, Preferred and Premier Annual Passes with a Coca-Cola and Coke Zero UPC code or promo code on special marked packages.
