Universal Orlando's Mardi Gras starts TODAY and it's better than ever before
Starting on February 6, 2016, the Mardi Gras celebration runs through April 16 and features over a dozen concerts from top artists and bands.
The Mardi Gras (Fat Tuesday) event brings together locals and tourists alike in this Florida version of the popular New Orleans' street party. But unlike the Big Easy, our Orlando Mardi Gras celebration lasts a lot longer and every night is a party at Universal Orlando.
Be aware that there will be lots of bead necklaces thrown around at Universal Orlando's Mardi Gras as the crowd cheers and dances until the wee hours of the night. Do know that admission to the Mardi Gras celebration includes access to concerts, the parade and plenty of French Quarter music performances.
And these are the artists who will be performing at the 2016 Universal Orlando Mardi Gras concerts and their concert dates:
Hunter Hayes: February 6
Diana Ross: February 13
Bare naked Ladies: February 14
Nate Ruess: February 20
Fall Out Boy: February 27
Kool & The Gang: March 5
The Fray: March 12
Adam Lambert: March 13
Shawn Mendes: March 19
3 Doors Down: March 20
REO Speedwagon: March 26
T-Pain: April 2
Jesse J: April 9
Yandel: April 16
Now, children are admitted to most areas but this is definitely an adult party with street dancing and alcoholic beverages. We advise you to check with Universal Studios’ Guest Relations at the park to get more information about this event and look forward to welcoming you at Vista Cay Resort by Millenium.
And remember to book early as availability is limited during theme park celebrations and special events!
