THE EXPERIENCE


The Parade Experience takes us into the Rio Carnival’s purpose-built stadium, the Sambódromo, where thousands of people will descend to watch you and your fellow Man Ex’ers perform on a float (don’t worry you dont need to know how to samba)


You’ll join forces with other performers wearing the same incredible costumes to form a spectacular decorative effect.  


An appointed carnival concierge will handle every detail and will work with you to select your costume. The opportunity to represent a school at Carnival is a huge honor, rooted in years of tradition and each year’s theme is painstakingly created with every last detail executed to bring it to life. Man Expeditions is honoured to be invited back to Rio Carnival to be part of Brazil's largest celebration. 


You’ll be immersed into this world by your Man Ex Carnival Consultant and briefed on the 2020 theme and music so when you arrive you’ll already feel part of it and raring to go! 

On the day of the carnival, we will drive you in via private transfer and your experience will be captured by one of our photographers so you’ll have the memories to look back over for a lifetime.
