9 of the Best Memorial Day Weekend Events in Orlando!

A Story By

Memorial Day Weekend is fast approaching and it’s the perfect excuse to fill up your calendar with fun stuff to do in Orlando! Not only do you get to add an extra day to your weekend, but you have the opportunity to honor those who have lost their lives while serving in our military. 

Whether you’re looking for ways to remember those who served, enjoy a festive celebration, or experience fun, family-friendly activities, we’ve got you covered! Here are some events that will assist you in your unofficial kickoff to summer!

The Orlando Carnival turns 32 this weekend! The Caribbean style carnival presents, preserves, and promotes Caribbean culture through colored costumes, rhythmic music, and a combination of dance that is truly Caribbean. Much like a Mardi Gras festival, you can expect community, food and drinks, music, and partying all day long!

The street parade is free and general admission and VIP packages for the stage shows are available. You can find the celebrations at Tinker and McCracken Fields at Camping World Stadium. Some of the performers and DJs include Bunji Garlin, Pumpa, Ravi B, Motto, Iwer George, and Farmer Nappy.

This big party is also family-friendly, so be sure to invite everyone to enjoy the exciting festival!
