Every night from Feb.9 – April 4 the streets of Universal explodes with colorful costumes and countless beads. And you can’t have a Mardi Gras celebration without a parade. Floats line the parade route as pass holders, and performers toss out the much-coveted beads. Truly bringing guest to the Big Easy.
Superstar singer-songwriters Sabrina Carpenter and Bazzi are joining the incredible concert lineup, which includes names like Macklemore, Mr.World Wide (Pit Bull) and others, for this years Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration – a family-friendly version of the renowned Big Easy bash that features authentic Cajun-style cuisine, an incredible nightly parade and – on select nights – live concerts from some of the biggest names in music.
Plus, as part of the Mardi Gras Celebration, guests will be able to sample new and returning authentic Cajun cuisine at the French Quarter Courtyard, as well as enjoy a party animal-themed parade that will run nightly throughout the streets of Universal Studios Florida.
