The Colorful History of Rio’s Carnival

While early celebrations in Rio date back to the 17th century, the famous samba school parades are far more recent. It all started in the 1910s when African communities in the city created a new music genre - samba. In the 1920s, samba quickly grew in popularity. And in 1929, the first samba school parade took place.

Until the 1980s, the parade was held in the middle of the city, which came with quite a few logistic challenges. Then, in 1984, the Sambadrome Marques de Sapucai was inaugurated as the new permanent home for samba schools. And it also started a new era in Rio’s Carnival, turning the parade into a competitive event.

Every year, over the course of four days, samba schools take their floats out and, together with thousands of members, parade down the 2,300 ft. concrete strip. Schools are then graded by a jury. On Ash Wednesday, the grades are revealed and the champion is crowned, while the bottom two schools are relegated to the lower division. Portela currently holds the record among all samba schools with 22 titles.

But the samba schools are far from being the only draw of Carnaval. In fact, some may argue that there is an even better way to enjoy the festivities - and that is by joining a street parade. Starting on the last Friday before Lent, these street parades - called blocos - draw in millions of people. Just like in any other Carnival celebration, people join these street parades to dance, sing, drink and let it loose.

Cordao do Bola Preta, which was created in 1918,is the oldest street parade in Rio’s Carnival. In 2012, it established the Guinness record for the largest organized street parade in the world, with 2.2 million people. The celebrations go on until Ash Wednesday, and sometimes past the date with post-Carnival parties. There is no end to the fun and festivities!

So, what is your pick? Are you going to join a samba school parade? Or do you prefer the street fun of the blocos? Why not both of them? No matter which one you choose, Rio’s Carnival definitely makes for a one of a kind experience!
