Is the Champions´ Parade Weekend still Carnival?  Definitely YES!!!

Champions´Parade Weekend is STILL CARNIVAL! Even though officially Carnival ends on Ash Wednesday at 12 noon, the parties in Rio de Janeiro won’t stop until the following Sunday. It feels like there´s a 2-and-a-half day Pause, but then on Saturday, it´s Carnival again until Sunday!

After the Parade Results on Ash Wednesday, only the top 6 Samba Groups will parade again 3 days later, on Saturday, at the Sambadrome, for the so-called Champions´ Parade.

The Champions’ Parade Weekend is an excellent opportunity for you TO SAVE A LOT, and still enjoy the Carnival Parade and Street Parties with the same atmosphere as during the Carnival Holiday that just happened the week before after all Carnival ends on Wednesday only in the Calendar, not for Brazilians who are saying good-bye to summer school vacations and want to enjoy until the last minute before going back to reality the next Monday. Many people say the New Year in Brazil starts that Monday after the Champions´ weekend when the school year starts and people go back to their routine after the summer break.

Tickets for the Champion’s parade are also cheaper and some people actually prefer watching the Champion’s parade because you get to watch the Top 6 Samba Groups out of 12 from the Special Group the weekend before.

Here are some reasons why you should definitely consider traveling to Rio during the Champion´s Parade Weekend.

1. Post-Carnival Street Parties in Rio

Many of the most traditional Street Parties (Blocos) in Rio will play again on the Champions´ Parade weekend. There are still hundreds of parties taking place all over the city. A party that during Carnival gathers 500.000 people, during the Champions´weekend will gather from 20.000 to 50.000, and that can be a huge plus! 

Click below to Enlarge the Street Parties Schedule for 2023. Parties highlighted in Yellow are Highly Recommended and as you can see, there are 2 massive parties, one Saturday and one Sunday. Anitta´s Party the weekend before gathered more than 1 million people. The image below is a summary of the best parties out of a hundred ones.

2. Hotel Prices 

Most Rio Hotels will have a very reduced rate compared to the weekend before. That means you will not have to pay for a Hotel Special Holiday Package that during Carnival cost up to 300% more expensive.

3. The Atmosphere

The Atmosphere of the Champions´ Parade is as sensational as during the Oficial Parade that took place the weekend before. Carnival parades at the Sambadrome are highly competitive, and the Champions’ Parade exudes the relaxed and upbeat atmosphere of thousands of people past the Ash Wednesday hurdle when the tense (and often tearful or heatedly contentious) point-counting takes place. The city of Rio will not be as crowded as just a few days before. This is a Huge PLUS!!! You will get to visit Rio´s postcards with much smaller lines!!! Traffic will be much less intense too!

4. Parade Tickets Price

It doesn’t hurt that tickets to the “Desfile das Campeãs”, also known as Sábado das Campeãs (the Champions’ Saturday), are more affordable than the ones on the weekend before.

5. The Audience

Besides parade participants themselves, samba schools have loyal followers who keep up with their every movement, cheer for them like sports fans, and come in throngs to the Winners’ Parade to celebrate their outstanding performance.

Because the parade also closes the Carnival season at the Sambódromo, there’s a pervasive feel of the last hurrah for Rio residents and tourists alike.

All 90.000 Champions´ Parade Tickets get sold as fast as the Carnival Parade.

6. The Pride

A concern that the Champions’ Parade might have a somewhat lackluster feel is quickly dismissed when you learn more about what Carnival means to samba schools – and what each samba school means to its members.

A samba school tugs at its members’ heartstrings much, in the same way, sports loyalty does. Earning the honor of being in the Winners’ Parade is something each samba school values very highly. A shoddy approach to the parade is completely out of the question. Everyone knows and wants to show you and make sure you agree, that they deserve to be back.

The floats, the creative costumes, the gung-ho drummers and “passistas” (dancers), the “destaques” or featured paraders, in their skimpy and/or outrageously luxurious costumes – they are all there.

Excellent! Highly recommended if you are visiting Rio on a cruise. Marcelo is very responsive and everything ran very smoothly. Did the one and a half day tour which was excellent. Easy to find at the cruise terminal, all very well organised, lovely helpful tour guide and good value for money. Also provided ticket and transfers for Carnival at the Sambadrome. Would definitely use again.

Marcelo is outstanding! Outstanding! Marcelo was terrific! He was very communicative and extremely helpful. We did the day and half tour of Rio first. Great trips on the cable car and to Christ the Redeemer, with tickets provided. Delicious lunch! Then Carnaval at the Sambadrome. It is impossible to describe the experience--such color, singing and dancing, such excitement! One of the best experiences imaginable! Marcelo recommended our seats--they were at eye level with the performers. One blew kisses at me! The transportation arrangements were very good. I was initially concerned about safety, but we were very safe getting there, and we felt quite safe in the Sambadrome. We were very pleased with Marcelo and highly recommend using him if you are going to Brazil.

What a city! We have just returned to the UK after an amazing holiday in South America. While in Rio de Janeiro, we used DoBrazilRight for all of our tours. We booked a day and a half intensive tour, visiting all the major sights. This tour was top notch. Our tour guide, Renato, was fabulous and looked after us so well. The cable car tickets to visit Sugar Loaf mountain and the train tickets to visit Christ the Redeemer were all booked in advance enabling us to skip the queues. The city was magnificent. We also booked our tickets to visit the Sambadrome for the Carnival with DoBrazilRight. What can I say about the carnival? It was truly brilliant and breathtaking. I have never seen anything like it and I’m unlikely to see anything like it again. What a show, what a night. We stayed right to the very end and the schools got better and better. We arrived back at our accommodation at 7.45am exhausted but exhilarated. Marcelo's communications were excellent and kept in touch to ensure we had a great time. And we did. We will definitely use DoBrazilRight if we visit Brazil again.

Best way to get Rio Carnival tickets Started corresponding with Marcelo long before our trip to make sure we got the right seats to watch the Carnival. He explained the options and so we purchased his recommendation (Sector 9 assigned seat). It really worked out well. Marcello was outside the cruise terminal at the time he said, for us to collect our tickets (Panic over!). He gave us our seat tickets and the transfer to and from the Sambadrome. On the night, because we had assigned seats, we caught the 9pm transfer to the Sambadrome - others had to go much earlier and just wait. We found our seats relatively easily and we had a great view (until people started standing up - but they soon got bored / tired). Do take a cheap inflatable cushion (£4.99 from Amazon UK) as the seats are just marks on the concrete. We met others on the cruise who had bought much more expensive places in boxes and they had to stand to see anything and they were too low down and too far back. They did get refreshments - so what - we went for the view and the drama. Getting back to the port was a doddle. As we walked out of the stadium agents in "T" shirts spotted us and asked where we were going back to. When we said the port that put us in a group until there were about 15 of us (5 minutes max) then they walked us to a minibus which got us back in no time. Thank you Marcello and the "DoBrazilRight" team. Clear communication and everything went smoothly - definitely the recommended option - rather than booking through the cruise line.

Rio Carnival via DoBrazilRight We booked our tickets through DoBrazilRight, and their advice made it a simple process. It is definitely worth paying a little more for seats, rather than standing. We were in Sector 13 right in front of the track. Marcelo was brilliant in all his communications by email, responding promptly & clearly.

An excellent one-stop shop for a trip to Rio (especially Carnaval). My wife found the site, and after reading some reviews, I decided to book with DoBrazilRight.com. I am writing this review the day I came back. We decided to do the Champions Parade package (mainly because of timing - our first day in Rio was the last day of Carnaval proper), with hotel, full day tour, airport transfers, and Champions Box seats. Admittedly, it was a last minute on our part (1 month before), but we decided to try. Marcelo was there from start to finish. From the beginning, he advised us on hotel, and he was spot on when he got us a room at the Arena Leme hotel, with one of the best views we had during any hotel stay, with a beautiful rooftop area where we could have Spanish food. He also advised us on and got us great box tickets for the Champions Parade, and these did not disappoint. Transfers to and from the airport and the Sambadrome were a breeze, with Marcelo communicating with us through WhatsApp all the way (highly recommend getting a SIM for Brazil and using WhatsApp there) - the Portuguese drivers were very friendly and cordial and are ready to help. The one day Rio Tour included Corcovado/Christ the Redeemer, Selaron steps, and Sugar Loaf/Pao do Assucar, all with a private guide who spoke excellent English (Leo), who was very informative and professional, and a great source on information on Brazilian/Rio history, restaurant recommendations, and had a great sense of humor. If I had any questions during the trip, Marcelo was there to help us. If you need a one-stop shop for a trip to Rio (especially for Carnaval), I would recommend DoBrazilRight.com without reservations. I plan on using Marcelo again if I plan on coming back to Rio.

Reliable Carnival ticket provider We took a leap of faith and bought box seat tickets from Marcelo. Tickets were delivered during airport transfer as promised. At the carnival, the people around us also used his services. He responds promptly to all emails and picks up the phone himself when I needed some clarifications. Highly recommended.

Wonderful Experience!!! Highly recommend DoBrazilRight and Marcelo as your travel agent. It was our first time to South American and being there during Carnival was a bucket list trip for us. It was also our first time using a travel agent so were a bit nervous but Marcelo made the whole process easy and stress free. He kept us informed and was very quick to respond to all of our emails. We did the 8-hr day tour of the Christ the Redeemer, Sugar Loaf Mountain, Selaron Stairway and the Cinelandia Square with lunch at Fogo De Chao restaurant. Renato was our tour guide and he was excellent. If you're there in Rio to see these sights, definitely spring for the 8-hr with lunch vs the 6-hr. On top of the fact that you're eating at the one of the most well known steakhouses in Rio, it was also nice to sit down for a bit between sites. Renato also made us a reservation at Restaurant Marius Degustare. It was right next door to our hotel and was like nothing we've ever seen before. It is a must visit! And, of course, the highlight of the trip was the parade at the Sambadrome. To see it in person is so much more incredible than I could ever describe. Whichever tour you decide to go on or whatever activity you want to do, DoBrazilRight is who you need to use. Marcelo and Renato and the whole DoBrazilRight staff planned and executed about as perfect of a trip as we could have hoped for.

Fantastic Carnaval/Rio de Janeiro vacation We had a fantastic time in Rio for Carnaval. We worked with Marcelo who crafted the perfect itinerary for our 5 night stay. Everything from flights, hotel, transportation, full day tour and tickets to the parade were all arranged for us. It made for a stress free vacation and an incredible experience. Any questions we had were answered quickly. The full day tour was great as well. Renato was our guide and was very knowledgeable and helped us capture great photos. If you are considering a trip to Brazil, you cannot go wrong using this agency. Marcelo in particular, was amazing. You will be in good hands.
