For 4 days, the best Brazilian samba schools parade through the Sambadrome in a colourful show. Every school performs for over an hour to win over the crowd and the judges; their show is judged on the co-ordination of the dancers, their float, music and costumes, as well as the energy of their performance. The show starts at the end of the evening and ends at dawn in a truly unique and electric atmosphere.

On Friday the 1st and Saturday the 2nd, the schools in Group A will compete for the chance to perform the following year in the Special Group.
On Sunday the 3rd and Monday the 4th, the schools in the Special Group, last year's champions, will take the stage. Based on this competition, the best samba schol in the Special Group will be named Carnival Champion on Wednesday.
On Saturday, March 9, the 5 best schools will return to the Sambadrome for the Champions' Parade.
