Florida’s biggest party, Mardi Gras at Universal Orlando is just around the corner. I have never made it over for this rollicking celebration, maybe this will be my year! There are a few musical headliners that I’d love the chance to see in person!
The 2017 Mardi Gras celebration is a family-friendly version of the famed New Orleans bash that features Cajun-style cuisine, authentic New Orleans flair, a spectacular parade, and – on select nights – live concerts by a star-studded lineup of musical artists covering everything from pop and R&B to rock and disco.
Universal’s Mardi Gras 2017 will run daily from Feb. 4 through March 25 – giving guests 50 nights to join the celebration. For 12 select nights during the event, guests can enjoy performances by nationally-recognized musical acts including award winning-multiplatinum selling Fifth Harmony, three-time GRAMMY Award winner NE-YO, superstar singer-songwriter Toby Keith and rock band Collective Soul. For the complete line-up and performance schedule, see below.
Guests can also enjoy authentic New Orleans-style cuisine at The French Quarter Courtyard and performances by bands pulled straight from Bourbon Street.
The excitement of Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras celebration is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida or with an Annual Pass. Florida Residents can get up to three months free on Power, Preferred and Premier Annual Passes with a Coca-Cola and Coke Zero UPC code or promo code on special marked packages.
