Sambodromo Samba Parade Rehearsals


Rehearsals in the Sambodromo for the 2015 Rio Carnival Samba Parade


Check here the Sambodromo rehearsal schedule for the 2015 Rio Carnival Samba Parade.
These rehearsals for the Samba Parade take place on the samba runway itself in the Sambodromo. They start in December.

Go and watch them for free. You can try most grandstand sectors. It is a good opportunity to warm yourself up for the great party that will develop during the actual Samba Parade and see it all in preparation.

The very last rehearsal is the most spectacular show with lights and sound system already in place for final testing. The champions of the previous parade are invited to. If you think that`s all, after that rehearsal, the biggest and most traditional street band (Cordão do Bola Preta) appears at beginning of the Venue, getting into the samba runaway playing traditional samba songs, called in Portuguese "marchinhas". Go, join in, dance and live Carnival with them! On this very day, Sambodromo lives it`s most crowded moment, as people can get there and watch for free! Don`t miss it!!!

SAMBA PARADE Rehearsals in the Sambodromo

The Samba Parade rehearsals in the Sambodromo are a bit like the Samba Parade itself however without costumes and floats.

Outside the Sambodromo...

Outside the Sambodromo there is an eating area (of Brazilian style - do not expect any sophistication here) which includes little drinks and barbecue stands. Lots of booze and "junk" food. The essence of Brazilian life.

There are also rehearsals in the samba schools' halls every week.
