If you have a need for beads, then Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando Resort™ is the place for you. Florida’s biggest and wildest party returns for nightly celebrations from February 1 to April 2, 2020. Here’s a look at the various types of New Orleans-style music, food, and festivities you can expect during Universal’s annual Mardi Gras celebration.
A Big Easy Blast
The boulevards of Universal Studios Florida™ will resemble N’awlins’ famed Bourbon Street as authentic, Kern Studios–designed parade floats are escorted down the thoroughfare by jubilant dancers, towering stilt-walkers, and extravagantly costumed horses. You’ll have a blast dancing to traditional blues, jazz, and zydeco sounds as colorful beads, doubloons, and confetti rain down on you and your surrounding sea of partygoers.
Festive Food and Spirits
Authentic Cajun delicacies, traditional Mardi Gras tastes and specialty NOLA-inspired libations will be available for purchase at Universal’s French Quarter Courtyard. Savory food specialties include:
- Sweet and sugary beignets
Throughout the event, a lineup of fan-favorite musical acts will grace the Universal Mardi Gras stage. On select nights, you can enjoy live concerts from some of the biggest names in pop, rock, R&B, country, and Latin music — all included with park admission. This year’s all-star performers include The Roots, Karol G., Bell Biv DeVoe, +Live+, Kool & the Gang, TLC, REO Speedwagon, Dustin Lynch, and Diana Ross.
