Brazilian Carnaval, an annual celebration, takes place in the days leading up to Lent, with the main celebrations occurring in the week before Ash Wednesday, in 2024 the festive will be held between Feb 8th and 13th.   

Carnaval is a vibrant fusion of African, European, and Indigenous influences. While Rio de Janeiro is its epicenter, other cities like Salvador and Recife also host notable festivities. Samba parades mark the commencement, where competing samba schools showcase elaborate performances featuring dazzling costumes, floats, and rhythmic music. The infectious beats of samba resonate through the streets, creating a lively atmosphere that draws locals and tourists alike.

Street parties, known as "blocos," add to the revelry, with participants dancing and celebrating amid vibrant displays of culture. Essential to the experience are the intricate costumes adorned with feathers, sequins, and lively colors. Beyond being a time of joy, Carnaval serves as a cultural expression reflecting Brazil's diversity and creativity.

Amid the festivities, traditional Brazilian foods take center stage.
