Open Start times between 7-9pm

Rua Marques de Sapucaí, São Cristovão

Nearby Stations
Metrô São Cristovão

The practices are well underway, the samba schools have their songs and themes fully prepared for Carnival 2013, and from December the Sambódromo opens its ample length for the purposes of some more serious test runs. The full entourage of floats and costumes are of course kept under wraps until much nearer 12 February when fireworks will announce Belford Roxo as first down the parade line, but for a taste of what is to come and a look behind the scenes, these free rehearsals are well worth a visit, but bear in mind that the top contenders from the Grupo Especial do not begin until 6 January.


Sambódromo rehearsals:
 

December

  • 9 - Rocinha (8pm) and Estácio de Sá (9pm)
  • 15 - Caprichosos (8pm) and Santa Cruz (9pm)
  • 16 - Tuiuti (7pm), Cubango (8pm) and Império Tijuca (9pm)
