Party Like It's New Orleans: Experience Our All-New Mardi Gras WeekendFebruary 17, 2020
Let the good times roll this weekend and celebrate Mardi Gras at Busch Gardens! This Saturday and Sunday only, guests don’t have to travel far to indulge and get in the New Orleans spirit. At our ALL-NEW Mardi Gras Weekend event, you’ll be transported to the “Big Easy” in our Moroccan Palace Plaza filled with limited-time food, cocktails, entertainment and live music.
Bourbon Street Bites
A Mardi Gras celebration isn’t complete without some good eats and a cocktail (or two). Start the party off with some classic NOLA fare, like shrimp po’ boy and jambalaya, then unwind with a Hurricane cocktail or our signature Mardi Gras Kiss cocktail. If you’re more in the mood for a brew (I mean, who isn’t when they’re at Busch Gardens?) then, an Abita Purple Haze or Big Easy IPA might be calling your name.
Come for the beads, stay for the beignets. Whether you start your day with this sweet treat and a cup of coffee, or save it as the grand finale to your foodie adventure, you won’t regret getting these powdered-sugar pastries.
Lastly, let’s talk about these Mardi Gras cupcakes... its festive frosting and colorful surprise inside is exactly what your sweet tooth is craving. “Do it for the ‘gram” and get a photo of yours with Cheetah Hunt in the background.
We hope you’re ready to reach for some beads, see the energetic New Orleans street performers, and feed the soul on Feb. 22 & 23 from 12:00 – 7:00pm! Mardi Gras Weekend is included with admission to the park. The best way to play is with a BOGO Fun Card! Grab yours here.
As they say in the French Quarter, "laissez les bons temps rouler"!
