  • The 37th Asakusa Samba Carnival Parade Contest

    25 August 2018 (Sat)
    Asakusa

     
    Asakusa Samba Carnival Parade Contest is a grand samba parade and competition, organized annually on the last Saturday of August.

    Since the first edition in 1981, the Asakusa event has been developed into one of the premier samba parades that take place in the northern hemisphere.

    Never mind if it is held in mid-summer, not during carnival. The participating teams follow the Rio de Janeiro style and the atmosphere is just great.

    Last year, about 5,000 energetic performers, with all their glamour and Brazilian costumes, attracted and mesmerized some 500,000 enthusiastic crowds.

    The competition 2018

    A total of 18 teams or Escola de samba (samba schools) will participate in the two-part competition in 2018. The participating teams in the full-fledged S-1 League will parade with elaborate floats, which is not allowed for S-2 League.

    The champion will be decided for each of these leagues, based on scores earned out of 500 points.
