This late spring month can be a great time to visit, as the crowds are generally small and you can often score good off-season deals (flights, accommodations).

Maceió Fest

Maceió’s biggest bash of the year is much like Carnaval, with street parades, outlandish costumes, bars that are open 24 hours and a general joie de vivre among the populace, only it's held in the third week of November. At this time, the locals head to the beaches.
