Universal Studios Mardi Gras is Coming to Orlando, February 7th to April 18th, 2015
Known as "Florida's Biggest Party," this New Orleans import into Central Florida brings music and celebration together with Orlando flair
Every late Winter (or early Spring), Universal Studios Florida becomes the host of a series of concerts that include headliner bands and artists. Every genre of music is covered at Universal Mardi Gras and this year the lineup includes Olivia Newton-John, Barenaked Ladies, Heart, Yandel, and the B-52s, among many more great names from everything from pop, R&B, country, and Latin music.
The 2015 Mardi Gras celebration at Universal Studios is one of the most attended events in Central Florida, drawing tourists and locals into the street party celebration that pays homage to its New Orleans roots. That said, it should be noted that Universal Mardi Gras is a family-friendly event where everyone can join the fun and carouse until close in a safe environment.
The event also features a parade with performers who will throw beads at bystanders as everyone dances to lively music under a street-wide light show. Universal Mardi Gras 2015 will also have a food section, known as the French Quarter Courtyard, featuring delicacies such as beignets, gumbo and Jambalaya.
To enjoy Mardi Gras at Universal Studios Florida, you must purchase a part ticket or an annual pass since all festivities occur inside the park. However, after the park closes the party continues at Universal City Walk, where live music, drink, foods, and more excitement await. And with so many bands performing at the event, there is no place in the world that offers you such a great chance to party than Universal Studios’ Mardi Gras.
Vista Cay Resort by Millenium is your Mardi Gras home base while attending the festivities—we are a mere couple of miles down the road from Universal Studios. This time of the year we are likely to sell out so be sure to check out our rates and book early!
