At the Stade de France, the Bataclan, in the cafes and restaurants of Paris... on Friday 13th November, terrorists killed and wounded many innocent people. And in doing so, they also aimed also to kill these places that we love, places which represent culture and a spirit of sharing.
We at WorldEventListings share the grief of the friends and families of the victims of the terrorist attacks of 13th November 2015. And we offer our unconditional support to all the cultural venues affected.
Our raison d'être has always been to share cultural information with as many people as possible. We will continue. We will win. Their failure is only a matter of time.

Description

The most famous carnival in the world!

A veritable institution in Brazil, the annual Carnival is the most popular national holiday in the country.

The parades during the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro are probably the most famous in the world, and it is at this time that the city's many samba clubs each present their new shows. During the Carnival, the entire city is alight with festive, fun-loving crowds; in the streets, in every bar, samba club, and nightclub.

Lasting four days, and ending with Ash Monday, the Epiphany and the fasting, it will be a colourful whirlwind of glitter and costumes, floats, drinking, dancing and fun. Rio is a city that lives for its carnival.

During your stay in Rio de Janeiro, you will be spoiled for choice as to which events to attend, as there are many taking place during the Rio Carnival. The festivities begin after the Epiphany with technical tests in the Sambadrome allowing a glimpse of what is to come in this celebration. During the carnival itself, dances are organized in several palaces in Rio de Janeiro inviting you to experience the magic of this festival which captures the imagination of people all over the world. In the streets of the capital, concerts and parades take place where you can discover the famous carioca "bandas" (traditional bands).

Don't miss the opportunity to take part in the world's biggest street party, the famous Rio Carnival!
