Carnival 2009 in Florianopolis - Gay Parties

The Gay Carnival in Floripa is well established but this year seems bigger than ever, probably rivalling Rio as the biggest gay carnival in Brazil.

Besides the every night street parties downtown ( the traditional Carnival do Roma) and the Pop Gay festival that happens on Monday night, there are many other club parties happening in different parts of the Island.

Downtown the local clubs ( Mix Cafe and Concorde) are open every night this week and the Sunrise boat party today was sold out.

The most talked about and busiest is The Week, which is filling to capacity every night. We went last night and we were quite impressed with the whole set up. More than 3000 men were undressed to impress! The setting by the lagoon side makes it unique too. It seems everybody was having a great time.

During the day Bar do Deca on the left side of Praia Mole is still the favourite hang out place. Late afternoons sees more than a thousand people enjoying caipirinhas and the amazing views.

Tip from Brazil Ecojourneys team:

The gay Carnival should go on strong until the weekend- if you are in Brazil you still have time to join the party. Check our site for ideas and more information.

The Gay Carnival Floripa 2009 was really great this year. The parties, beaches like Praia Mole, The Week Club gave us the best parties with an amazing place, between beach and lagon. Just incredible, a lot of guys and girls from all over Brazil and some international people too.
If you need only beach, there are more than Mole like the beautiful Campeche.
Marta and Leslie know ALL about the Island, visit and enjoy.
