It's the most spectacular celebration of the Big Easy spirit outside of New Orleans itself - Mardi Gras at Universal Studios®. Bring the whole family for a party filled with music and fun as only Universal Orlando® Resort can throw. The air will be filled with the sound of live concerts featuring top recording acts including Matchbox Twenty, Pitbull, Demi Lovato, Steve Miller Band, Trey Songz, Phillip Phillips, and more. Catch beads by the handful as our dazzling parade winds its way through the park with incredible floats and colorful street performers in glittering costumes. Plus, our French Quarter Courtyard sizzles with authentic Cajun food and live music from bands direct from New Orleans. There's nothing else like it this side of the bayou!
