Put on your finest green shirt when you head out to the Universal Orlando Resort on Tuesday, March 17th, because it's time to celebrate St. Patrick's Day! From an 8-hour celebration in CityWalk to some classic Irish fare and drinks at Universal Studios Florida, here's everything you need to know to celebrate St. Paddy's Day like a pro at Universal Orlando.
St. Patrick’s Day Celebration at Universal CityWalk
Universal CityWalk is throwing two parties in one, and admission is completely free! First, from 6:00 PM to 10:30 PM all ages are invited to catch a one-of-a-kind show at the outdoor CityWalk Lagoon Stage. There will be performances of high-energy Celtic rock music, stilt walkers, street entertainment and more, along with celebratory drinks and snacks available for purchase.
After the stage show celebration ends, the party moves upstairs to Pat O’Brien’s, where only guests 21 and older will be permitted. Here you can enjoy dueling pianos and more entertainment until 2:00 AM! Grab one of Pat O’Brien’s specialty green drinks for the complete St. Patrick’s Day experience, like the Fuzzy Leprechaun with vodka, peach schnapps and blue curacao, or Pat O’s Rainstorm featuring Van Gogh vodka, Midori melon liqueur and Don Q coconut rum.
Party During the Day at Universal Studios Florida
While at the parks be sure to pop into the resident Irish pub, Finnegan’s Bar & Grill, for some authentic Irish dishes like Bangers and Mash, Shepherd’s Pie and Guinness Beef Stew. This is also your spot for some frosty green beer or a pint of Guinness. You can enjoy live music and festive sing-alongs to traditional pub songs while you dine. With all this excitement and good cheer, you'll really be feeling the luck of the Irish!
While at the park, be sure to take in the high-energy Mardi Gras celebration with live entertainment, fun food and drinks, plus the incredible parade filled with dancers, music and of course, beads! Try the High Seas Twister rum punch to drink and any of the tasty Cajun food offerings at The French Quarter Courtyard for an incredible snack or meal. What better way to celebrate the day than at Florida's biggest party?
