In 2019, the Rio Carnival starts Saturday March 2nd and that is the day
we will celebrate in Accra for the 8th time.

The Rio Carnival is a wild 5-day celebration, 40 days before Easter. It officially starts on Friday and finishes on Fat Tuesday with the beginning of Lent on Ash Wednesday after which one is supposed to abstain from all bodily pleasures. Carnival with all its excesses, celebrated as a profane event, could be interpreted an act of farewell to the pleasures of the flesh. It is usually in February, the hottest month in the Southern Hemisphere, when summer in Rio de Janeiro is at its peak.

Each year since 2012, for all of us who cannot go to Rio de Janeiro ;-) accraexpat.com organizes its "Rio Carnival" in Accra: see the photo albums of each year's events on our Facebook page .

Find pictures of the 2017 edition here and watch the good video.

Thanks to all, this event has become part of the Accra scene, with over 500 guests year after year.

Samba, Bossa Nova, Funk Carioca, Electrobrasil and Latino music will keep this Carnival do Brazil party going through the night. A music diversity of the deep rooted Afro-Latin rhythms that conquered the world.

 Location in Accra to be announced.
As always, the party will be held outdoor under trees decorated and lit for the occasion. 
Doors open at 9pm. Brazilian music exclusively for the first hours.
Six costumed Carnival queens will join us.
Tickets at the door: GHS 30 single - GHS 50 couple.
A carnival face mask will be given to guests but it is up to you to dress Carnival-style!

The 8500+ Members of accraexpat.com from 95+ countries, the Brazilian community, the entire expatriate community and our Ghanaian friends are invited to party the Brazilian way.
