Universal Orlando Resort will hold a culinary event, Mardi Gras 2021: International Flavors of Carnaval, at Universal Studios Florida from Feb. 6 to March 28.
The festival is the first of its kind at Universal.
It will feature more than 70 menu items from 13 locations around the world. The park will also be decorated, with Mardi Gras floats will be stationed throughout. A "Big Easy bash" will feature dancers, brass bands and stilt performers in the streets, and a Mardi Gras Tribute Store will feature unique merchandise.
In addition to the many dishes at Universal Studios Florida -- including Cajun cuisine like jambalaya and classic Carnaval dishes like Puerto Rico's pernil and mofongo -- Carnaval-themed menu items will be featured at Universal CityWalk and Universal's hotels.
