An Introduction to the 2022 Carnival in Brazil
Brazil is a country renowned worldwide for its vibrant nightlife, delicious food, and of course its famous Carnaval. A happy and exciting event that takes place every year between February and March in many parts of the country. In 2022 the celebration will take place in Rio de Janeiro in particular, hosting thousands of people both Brazilian natives and visitors from all around the world.
One thing’s for sure: Carnaval is definitely not a party to miss! The days leading up until it are full of excitement as everyone eagerly waits to have some fun – whether they’re partaking or just watching from a distance.
Carnaval has been held since the first century BC when Ancient Roman festivities were taken over by Portuguese settlers who left their own festivities traditions behind, which eventually developed into modern-day Carnaval. This festival today is rooted in European culture but today folks celebrate it with an unmistakably Mardi Gras style flair; wearing masks and costumes, performing outlandish dances and competing for awards for best dressed couple/solo performer at various live events throughout the city where each day different themed parades take place.
These parades feature samba troops known as “samba schools”, which include revelers adorned with elaborate handmade costumes designed specifically to represent each school’s theme of that particular year. Every school tries to top their last performance by outdoing previous years’ efforts with even more complex costumes, instrumentation, dance routines, etc., captivating spectators until very late at night or even early morning hours! It also seems like almost anything goes during this time –just bear in mind when packing outfits that minimum clothing requirements apply – nudity still isn’t allowed anywhere in Brazil
In addition to these amazing parades there are multiple beach parties featuring DJs playing all sorts of genres throughout the many different days; folkloric “bloco” masks where participants wear oversized hats filled with decorative elements such as fruits or feathers often followed by bands playing

Top 5 Facts About Celebrating Carnival in Brazil
Carnival, or Carnaval in Portuguese, is one of the world’s most popular and vibrant celebrations – particularly so in Brazil. Taking place annually between February and March, Carnival was originally a Roman Catholic pre-Lenten festival tied to Christianity. Over the centuries, it has become one of Brazil’s favorite national holidays and an extremely important piece of Brazilian culture.
1) It goes beyond Rio de Janeiro – While Rio de Janeiro’s Sambadrome parade might be the spectacle most closely associated with Carnival celebrations, these festivities are celebrated across the entire country. Smaller cities throughout Brazil are known for different Carnival experiences: Recife-Olinda offers up its upbeat Frevo music; Olinda revelers put on their traditional marches dressed as clowns; Belo Horizonte residents prepare for the chamicalhadas (musical battles involving marching bands). Wherever you go in Brazil during Carnival season, you will find something unique to that location.
2) Preparation – Like any party worth its weight in feathers, Brazilian Carnival takes months of preparation and careful consideration. In particular, samba schools devote much time to training dancers and choreographing new routines each year. This intense reevaluation process typically lasts until mere days before the beginning of Carnaval parades at the annual competition held by the Liga Independente das Escolas de Samba (Independent League of Samba Schools) at Rio de Janeiro’s infamous Sambadrome!
3) Costume changes – During mid-week Carnaval meetings known as saideiras (Portuguese for “going out”), costuming becomes a primary factor! Specializing in masks modeled after traditional African landscapes or magical lores from times passed, individual creativity is expected as partiers switch things up every night donning outfits despite carrying small totes filled with few spare threads underneath regular street clothes all night long!
4) All nighters – Of course no
