Carnival in Rio 2014: The FULL list of parties

Carnival is here! The huge party that is Carnival in Rio de Janeiro is upon us once again and 2014 looks to be a hot and exciting time. There are parties across the city and below is a full list of all the blocos in town.

Blocos (street parties) are free to enter and run from early in the morning until the early evening. The open-air parties get very busy and travel can get a bit chaotic so be flexible with your travel plans and just go with the flow – it’s Carnival!

The official Carnival period runs from Saturday 1st until Wednesday 5th, although blocos already started over a week ago and will run the weekend after too.
