Without a doubt, the most famous event of the year is the Carnival of Rio de Janeiro. We have assembled this package so that you can come to Rio to fully enjoy, in a unique experience. One of the biggest shows in America and one of the greatest manifestations of the Carioca culture, which fills the streets of the city with music and color for a week and has its climax in the spectacular parade.
The 2020 Rio Carnival officially begins on Friday, February 21th. and ends on Tuesday of Carnival, February 25th. Rio de Janeiro's Carnival is not only the biggest Carnival in the world, but also a reference against which all others are compared. The Carnival is one of the most interesting artistic events on the planet.Although Carnival is celebrated in cities and towns throughout Brazil and other Catholic countries, Rio de Janeiro is considered the Carnival's capital city. Almost everyone has heard of the Carioca Carnival. In addition to receiving tourists from all Brazilian states, Rio also receives thousands of foreign visitors that add up to 500 thousand a year.
For those who prefer closed places, there are the classic gay carnival balls. Gala Gay at Scala, situated in Leblon, is on Carnival Tuesday and it is the most traditional one. It concentrates the most exotic personalities with the most luxurious costumes. We think it is important to warn that Scala Gay is televised, so if you don't want to be caught, don't forget to take your mask!
The Le Boy disco promotes gay balls every carnival nights, and besides the samba rhythm, there is also dance music with go-go boys' performances. Next to the Sambadrome, Elite promotes gay balls in a big samba hall on Carnival Sunday and Monday.
