It’s our favorite time of year… can you guess why?
Let’s start with a hint. “Beads, Beignet, Bright Lights and Big Musical Names!” You guessed it! It’s time to party with Universal Studios Orlando during the Mardi Gras: International Flavors of Carnival Festival 2023. This fun festival runs from February 4 – April 16th and is cram packed with excitement!
You can find something for everyone during the Mardi Gras Festival but one of the greatest events are the many FREE concerts for park goers. We’ve had the pleasure of seeing such names as DJ Marshmallow and Jason Derulo in years past and this year’s lineup does not disappoint.
- Saturday, February 4th – Patty LaBelle
- Saturday, February 10th – JVKE
- Saturday, February 11th – Goo Goo Dolls
- Saturday, February 18th – Maren Morris
- Saturday, February 19th – WILLOW
- Saturday, February 25th – 3 Doors Down
- Saturday, March 4th – Sean Paul
- Sunday, March 5th – Lauren Daigle
As I mentioned, concerts are free for anyone holding a valid park ticket and are held at the Music Plaza Stage in Universal Studios. Performances are on select dates above and are very popular! If you happen to be visiting during one of these concerts, make sure to find a spot on the lawn, in front of the stage, early!
Additional dates get added from time to time so check back as we will update the lineup as soon as we know!
