The festival will wrap up on April 7, 2024.

As usual, Mardi Gras festivities will include a parade — which guests have the opportunity to participate in — as well as live concerts and special food. Last year, Mardi Gras had a “mythical realms” theme.

The Mardi Gras Tribute Store will likely be in the Hollywood section of Universal Studios Florida, like last year. The festival is mostly held in Universal Studios Florida, but last year, there were food booths in Universal’s Islands of Adventure for the first time.

Watch our video of last year’s parade below and check out our guide to Mardi Gras 2023 for an idea of what to expect next year.
