Discover The Best Time and Events to Enjoy Sao Paulo

The best time to visit São Paulo is in spring, from September to November. This low season has hot days and cold nights, little crowding, and a series of events for all kinds of interests, such as the São Paulo International Film Festival, Restaurant Week, and the Brazilian F1 Grand Prix. Also, you can get some hotel and flight deals during these months. For those who want to go to the nearby beaches and enjoy the carnival, however, summer is the next season, even with heavy rains.

Peak Season

Paulo has two peak seasons: the holiday season from a week before Christmas until Carnival ends and the winter months of July and August. Airfare and hotel prices will be higher from December to March, and rates will skyrocket during Carnival. Although expensive, it is one of the most fun times to be in the city.

Brazilians take vacations seriously. Expect some services and businesses to be closed or operating for limited hours during Christmas and New Years (sometimes for up to a week or two).


São Paulo has a humid subtropical climate with a temperate climate all year round, lots of rain, and a little variation between seasons. Known as Terra da Garoa, the rains are one of the main differentiating factors of the seasons. Summer is the rainiest and the streets can be flooded. However, this season still has plenty of sun and mild temperatures (61.1 to 79.2 degrees F), making it the best season to go to the nearby beaches.

The spring and fall seasons have slightly cooler temperatures (55 to 76.1 degrees F for spring and 53.1 to 77.2 degrees F for fall), with plenty of sunshine and hours of daylight. For the less humid climate and drier season, go in winter.

Popular events and festivals

By far the biggest festival of the year is Carnival. The paulistanos let loose before the solemn days of Quaresma by drinking, dancing and singing in great parades of samba schools in struggle and dancers adorned with sequins and feathers. For the biggest party, go to the Sambadrome.

Sampa has a strong art scene and many of its events are based on exhibiting it. The São Paulo Art Biennial, the second oldest biennial in the world, takes over Ibirapuera Park every two years in April to showcase international works of art, while Virada Cultural is a 24-hour celebration of culture through shows, films , plays, art exhibitions, and dances, filling cultural spaces, streets and even libraries.


This is the wettest month with 9.4 inches of rain. Fortunately, January also has some of the longest days of the year (13.4 hours of daylight per day) and an average temperature of 70.7 degrees F, which means there is still plenty of good weather, despite the rains.
