Mardi Gras Universal Orlando

If you’ve ever been to New Orleans during Mardi Gras, you know the party never stops. And if you’ve ever been to Universal Studios Mardi Gras celebration you know when the parades, concerts and street performers end, the party is just beginning!

On Mardi Gras Event nights your Universal Studios theme park tickets get you free admission to seven CityWalk clubs. After you’ve caught all of the beads you can carry, indulged in the best Cajun cuisine you may ever taste and listened to free concerts by some of the biggest names in the music industry like Trey Songz on Feb. 23, Demi Lovato on March 2, Montgomery Gentry on March 9, Sean Kingston on March 15, Matchbox Twenty on March 16, Austin Mahone on March 22, Phillip Phillips on March 23, Pat Benatar & Neil Giraldo on March 30, Kool & The Gang on April 6, Pitbull on April 13 and The All-American Rejects on April 20, head over to CityWalk for the After-Party and keep the Bayou Bash going with some of CityWalk’s best nightclubs and bars.

The Mardi Gras CityWalk After-party gives Annual Pass or Universal Studios theme park ticket holders free admission to seven of CityWalk’s most popular clubs like Pat O’Brien’s, the club Universal has deemed “CityWalk’s Mardi Gras Headquarters.” That’s because this Irish pub is actually an exact replica of a famed New Orleans bar where Mardi Gras takes place every day of the year! Revelers can keep the party going with a drink on Pat O’Brien’s famous Patio Bar, enjoy Cajun cuisine in the Main Bar and get really rowdy with a sing-along in the Piano Lounge.

Don’t forget to stop by CityWalk’s Rising Star, where you get to sing Karaoke with a Live band and backup singers for a true rock star experience. Other bars and nightclubs partying into the wee hours of the morning for the Mardi Gras festivities include Red Coconut Club, Velvet Bar, Jake’s American Bar, Jimmy Buffet’s Margaritaville, Latin Quarter where you can continue to sample Nawlins’ tastiest Cajun dishes and many more.

Plus, just like during the parade at Universal Studios, CityWalk guests will get the chance to catch as many beads as they can as fellow party-goers toss them down into the streets while they party at CityWalk’s nightclubs and bars.

To keep the Mardi Gras festivities going long after the streets of Universal Studios go dark, your Universal Studios ticket will grant you access to CityWalk clubs for free on Mardi Gras nights. If it’s not a Mardi Gras night, CityWalk Party Pass tickets are well worth it if you’re in a partying mood. You can catch the Cajun fun at Universal Studios and CityWalk from now until April 20.
