Rio de Janeiro Carnival parade

What is the difference between Access Group, Special Group and Champions Parade?

Every year, Samba Schools compete for the Rio de Janeiro Carnival Champion Title. More than 90 thousand people perform throughout Carnival. Each School has between 4 thousand and 5 thousand participants. There are 5 days of Parade, divided into three categories:

Access Group, Special Group and Parade of Champions.

Rio de Janeiro Carnival - Access Group

These two days tickets are significantly cheaper. Although schools work with a smaller budget, the enthusiasm and beauty are the same.
The best Samba Schools at Rio de Janeiro Carnival will have the great privilege of participating in the Special Group next year.

Rio de Janeiro Carnival - Special Group

These are considered the big days of the Rio de Janeiro Carnival Parade.
The best 12 Samba Schools in Rio de Janeiro present all their creativity and news.
These are the true magical nights of the Sambadrome.

Rio de Janeiro Carnival - Parade of Champions

This Parade takes place on the first Saturday after Carnival.
Tonight, the 6 best Schools in the Special Group plus the Champion of the Access Group repeat their performances.
This is an extraordinary night, and these are not the most expensive tickets, great value for money

Ticket and shuttle to sambadrome February 2020 I purchased the tickets online from tripadvisor to pick my tickets up in Rio. The experience was excellent we picked our tickets up near our hotel on the day of the carnival and were picked up on time outside our hotel and taken to the sambadrome which was very well organised by the ticket company in Rio . The experience itself was a dream come true for my wife and I as we were celebrating our 25 anniversary and this ticked all the boxes for us We were picked up directly outside the stand area by a very well organised team outside and taken back to our hotel . We booked tickets for the stands in row 9 which were great to see the parades of schools Would recommend tripavisor and also a trip to a Brazil amazing time

Desfile de campeones Inolvidable!!! Quedé muy conforme con el servicio. Retirar los tickets en Copacabana fue re sencillo. Elegí la opción con metro para lado par, y encontre el acceso enseguida. Si bien llovió mucho ese día, no pude irme del sambódromo hasta no ver todas las escolas del desfile de campeones. Ya estoy pensando en volver!

The Party of a Lifetime After reading some reviews on other providers, we opted to get our tickets through Viator as our trusted vendor. Purchasing was easy but pick-up could’ve been better. You have to locate a store in the Copacabana neighborhood and after showing them our confirmation info, they still struggled to locate our tickets. We opted for the international section, Sector 9, since neither of us speak Portuguese and we know Rio can be a dangerous place. The tickets came with roundtrip metro tickets and I’ll be honest, never felt unsafe. We should’ve been a bit more proactive when grabbing our tickets because we followed Google maps on how to use the metro and got lost attempting to locate the entrance to Sector 9. The Sambadrome is all even numbers on one side and odd on the other. We had to walk completely around the stadium which meant walking under a freeway and then up and down what seemed to be active entrance and exit ramps. Finally we located Sector 9! Please note, the international part means that 1 person at each main entrance might speak your language. Once inside you can buy cans of beer, bottled water and tons of Red Bull. Our tickets said 8pm but the first school didn’t start until 10:45pm. So we stood under cover from the rain for over 2 hours. Luckily, the rain stopped and to program began. Any other frustration melted away as the pumping music started, the crowd began to cheer and out came the most dazzlingly dressed and energetic humans I’ve ever seen. Everyone was moving and dancing and smiling. It was like nothing I had ever experienced before and I’ve attended Chicago Pride when attendance capped at 800K and have done Marci Gras. Nice try but those don’t hold a candle to energy of Carnival!

Impressionnant ! Nous avons donc réservé des billets pour la parade du carnaval de Rio le samedi 22 février 2020 au Sambodrome en plein cœur de la ville, il faut déjà savoir qu’après avoir acheter le billet en ligne il faut allez le récupéré au bureau fait pour cela à Copacabana le matin et non pas au dernier moment et ne pensez pas que la confirmation de l’achat et le billet en soit !! Ensuite il faut ce rendre au Sambodrome et que la fête commence ! Le site indique 20h pour le début du défilé mais il ne commence réellement pas avant 22h . Bon voyage !
