Be ready for pickup at 9pm from hotels in Barra, Centro, Flamengo, Sao Conrado, Leblon, Ipanema, Copacabana, or the cruise ship port, and ride in an air-conditioned van to the Samba Parade. Choose to attend one of the most important nights of Carnival, either Sunday February 11 or or Monday February 12, 2018.
The two nights are similar, with six of the best samba schools in the First League (the Special Group) marching on both days. Enjoy a highly orchestrated show of vast proportions for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your Rio Samba Parade ticket is valid for one night only and is designated for Sector 4 of the Sambodromo.
