Mardi Gras

Want to forget all about Valentine’s Day and just have fun? Head to Universal Studios for their annual Mardi Gas Celebration! Typically Universal is known for its Halloween Horror Nights event that is held from September to October every year. However, Mardi Gras is an incredibly fun event that deserves the same recognition as Halloween Horror Nights.

This year the event will run from February 6 – March 28 and will be called Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval and is included in the price of admission.

Guests will enjoy an eclectic global food fest with more than 70 delectable dishes and beverages from 13 locations around the globe. Plus, Universal Studios Florida will be decked out in vibrant décor and guests will have the first-ever opportunity to get up close with spectacular and intricately-detailed Mardi Gras floats stationed throughout the theme park.
