Lonely Planet review
A festival atmosphere pervades this popular weekend fair. Young crowds mill through the clothing, sunglasses and jewelry stalls as live bands play nearby. There are also places to get your fortune read by misticos (psychics) or receive a henna tattoo. Food stalls (of the fried-sausages-and-beer variety) litter the fairgrounds. The event is held either in the Joquei Clube (Rua Jardim Botânico 971, Jardim Botânico) or in Barra (Av das Américas 1510). Call or check website for details.
