Hippie Fair


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the distance from the Sheraton Leblon to the Hippie Fair? Is it walkable (3 miles or less) ? Is it located along the beach?



It is exactly 2.5 km. Or thereabouts. It is a straight shot along the beach and then one left turn for 2 blocks until you come to Plaza General Osorio where the hippie fair is held each Sunday.

By the way, that Sheraton is not actually situated in Leblon. It is in São Conrado. By the way again, don´t overlook the São Cristavo fair, aka the Paraiba fair, aka Centro Cultural de Luiz Gonzaga on the road to the airport. It is a much more entertaining fair with live music and dancing, food, crafts from the northeast of Brasil. Check it out if you have time some evening or weekend day. Not many international tourists, but a great way to experience a different part of Brasil for the price of a R$ 20 cab and R$ 3 entry fee.

Thank you,

We had never heard of the Sao Cristabo fair and will consider that as another option.


Could not get the English translation . Maybe you can.

http://www.rio.rj.gov.br/riotur/pt/guia/?Canal=41 for the Rio govt page;

http://www.feiradesaocristovao.org.br/ for the fair´s page. I have written to these folks advsing them they ought to have an English translation....maybe you can use an online translation program.

Good anytime on Weekends day or night, and for lunch , mid-day from Tues to Thursday. Try it .You´ll like it. ( Not R$ 3 admission- just R$ 1).
