Who doesn’t love a holiday that really focuses on the fun? St. Patrick’s Day and Mardi Gras are two holidays that truly encourage celebration and letting loose. What better way to spend the festivities than in Orlando, Florida where the fun never ends?

In Orlando, there’s something for everyone – meaning kids, adults and beyond can partake and enjoy the ongoing celebrations. Check out the ongoing events for the holidays below.

Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras 

Universal Studios Florida™ does Mardi Gras like no other. Instead of observing one day of celebration, the theme park extends the festivities from February 9 – April 4, making it Florida’s biggest party.

Every night, expect a genuine New Orleans parade taking over the streets of Orlando. Expect to be bedazzled by the costumes, lights, and performances. Mardi Gras in Orlando is a months-long celebration featuring a memorable concert series and delicious fare. With each park admission, Annual Pass or Seasonal Pass*, the festivities are included.

Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival

Have an authentic Irish St. Patrick’s celebration with classic Irish entertainment and beverages from March 15 – 17. This incomparable festival includes a weekend of craft cocktails, a diverse beer selection, and boisterous Irish fare performances from musicians and dancers. The Raglan Road Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival also welcomes a family-friendly atmosphere where kids can enjoy a weekend of face painting, dance lessons and more.

This year, the crowd-favorite, Young Dubliners take the stage to offer a foot-stomping performance. Joining one of the St. Patrick’s stages is the award-winning duo Briste, Reel Republic, TradGad, the Raglan Roots Coalition, the outstanding Ragland Road Irish Dancers, and many more.

After a long day and evening of celebrations, retire in a comfortable bed at the Vista Cay Resort Orlando. This prime location offers exceptional service and deluxe comfort without breaking the bank.
