Celebrate Mardi Gras @ SeaWorld!

By Courtney Daly-Pavone February 10, 2022

Every Weekend in February SeaWorld is hosting a Mardi Gras Celebration!

The event is included in park admission. Come celebrate and enjoy live music, colorful costumes, cheerful performers, and kids’ games and activities. Plus there are ALL-NEW Creole and Cajun menu items! 


Kid-Friendly Mardi Gras Festivities Include:

  • Guests will dance in the street to jazzy beats while grasping for shiny beads during the daily Mardi Gras walking parade along SeaWorld’s very own “Bourbon Street.” The parade will run twice a day and feature a live band as well as an assortment of street performers such as jugglers, jesters, and more.
  • Family-friendly activities will take place throughout the weekend, including an opportunity to participate in the Mardi Gras parade alongside merry Mardi Gras performers! The festival area will also have a face painting booth, fair-style games, and other fun kid’s activities.
  • The area will be buzzing with French Quarter beats as live musical performances take place on our SkyTower Stage. Guests can enjoy sets from DJs and groove to classic Mardi Gras genres, such as Dixieland and Jazz, plus special performances by the San Diego Marine Corp Marching Band on select dates. 
  • Of course, it’s not Mardi Gras without decadent food. Guests will indulge in a variety of ALL-NEW food offerings at the park including Creole and Cajun food favorites like zesty andouille sausage and shrimp jambalaya, hearty po-boy sandwiches, mouthwatering dirty rice, delicious King Cake Roulade, fluffy filled beignets doused in powdered-sugar, and more. Guests who are 21 and older can also partake in refreshing festive cocktails such as classic Hurricanes and Frozen Margaritas.
