Universal Orlando has announced they are once again extending the Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval event at Universal Studios Florida until May 2 due to increased demand.

The event features more than 70 dishes and beverages from 13 locations around the globe, and with the park vibrantly decorated and featuring costumed dancers and stilt performers just like years prior (just at a safe distance). Guests will also have the first-ever opportunity to get up close with the intricately-detailed Mardi Gras floats that will be stationed throughout the theme park.

Guests can also celebrate Mardi Gras at select venues at Universal CityWalk and the Universal Orlando hotels.

Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras 2021 is included with admission to Universal Studios Florida or with a Seasonal or Annual Pass. To learn more about Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval, visit www.UniversalOrlando.com/MardiGras; and make sure to read our review on this year’s event, too!
