Want to know what the dates of the 2014 carnival in Brazil are? According to the official calendar, the 2014 carnival will take place between 28 February and 5 March.

  • The Rio de Janeiro escolas de samba will parade at the sambadrome on Sunday 2 and Monday 3 March.
  • The São Paulo parades will take place on Friday 28 February and Saturday 1 March.

Although the dates seem miles away, the farsighted travellers will make accommodation arrangements for the period long in advance – it is the only way of finding good value accommodation for places like Rio de Janeiro or Salvador.

As more details emerge I will keep you posted.

The carnival of Salvador de Bahia 2013 is around the corner! This year’s edition promises to be far less stressful than it was last year, when a police strike turned nasty.

The big party fueled with music, drink and massive crowds will soon occupy up the streets of Salvador. During the dates of the carnival large closed circuits are set up in the city of Salvador. Parading through them, mammoth juggernatus, the trios elétricos, with music bands and artists playing on top of them.

The carnival’s official website, in Portuguese only, contains more information on the event.

Over the last few years the Rio carnaval de rua, the carnival on streets, has experienced booming popularity. Admittedly, the carnival on the street lacks the sumptuous visuals of the Sambadrome parades. But it is no match when it comes to force, energy, espontaneity and popular participation. To take part in the street carnival, after all, no purchase of expensive tickets is required. Actually, you don’t need to purchase any tickets at all.

The official website of the Rio tourism authorities has just launched the official guide to the Carnaval de Rua Rio 2013 where you will find the dates and locations of the street parties. A fantastic welcome addition to the guide this year is its foreign-language versions, in English and Spanish. The core of the party are the blocos, carnival groups parading throughout town.
