Here’s the official schedule (PDF, in Portuguese), including all the big shows (listed above) and the smaller shows, plus where they will be happening. Click here to see the way Recife will look once all the decorations are put up (example above). Feel free to get to know the Carnival songs (marchinhas, etc) that will be playing. If you are looking for places to stay, I did write about Recife’s hostels, though they’re surely quite booked by now, it doesn’t hurt to try. Also, here’s last year’s Carnival costs, in case you’re interested in that kind of thing and didn’t see my post on it yet.
