Samba Parade Rehearsals

LEARN MORE ABOUT
2017 RIO CARNIVAL

 

Technical rehearsals – Ensaios Técnicos in Portuguese - are like the main parade, with the same samba, drummers, the flag bearer and her escort. The costumes and the floats are the only two elements not shown here for obvious reasons.

The technical rehearsals attract an enormous crowd of locals and are really worth taking part of.

It's free. If you have the chance to attend, we recommend you not to miss it. Since the official techinical rehearsals table of 2017 is released closer to carnival, here’s the official schedule of the technical rehearsals for the 2017 Rio Carnival.
