Universal Orlando has announced the dates for next year’s Mardi Gras celebration.

The popular event will take place every night from February 3 through April 7 in 2018, spanning 64 nights – making it the longest celebration Universal has held – with the food courtyard open and the parade taking place every night.

On select nights, popular acts from yesterday and today will perform live in concert in the Music Plaza Stage. The concert lineup for Mardi Gras 2018 will be revealed in the coming months.

Mardi Gras is included in admission to Universal Studios Florida.
