Why do Rio Carnival Dates Change Every Year?

The Rio de Janeiro Carnival is a world famous festival that happens before Lent. Brazil Carnival has its origins in ancient Greece and Rome celebrations that later, were incorporated into the Catholic liturgical calendar. By the Catholic Calendar, Carnival is always celebrated seven Sundays before the Sunday of Easter. This is why the Rio Carnival Dates vary from year to year.

Easter Sunday is immediately after the full moon that occurs between March 22 and April 26. This difference in dates happens because the calendar used to set the months  and days of the year is based on the sun. The calendar that set the dates of Easter is based on the moon, so every year the dates will change and that affects the Rio Carnival Dates.
