The spirit of Mardi Gras isn’t bound to the Big Easy; the connection sparks as the parade rolls by, as the beads fill the air, when the music swells as the stage lights rise. And now you can be a part of it all at Universal Studios Mardi Gras Grand Celebration.

Universal Orlando

Come join the party with a dazzling parade, beads by the handful, and the most amazing concert line-up ever, featuring some of the biggest names in pop, rock, R&B, country, and hip-hop performing live in the Universal Music Plaza Stage.

Bring friends and family for the colorful costumes, festive performers, and spectacular floats. Plus, the air will be filled with the spicy aroma of authentic Cajun food* and the sweet sounds of real New Orleans musicians playing in the French Quarter Courtyard.
