The Street Carnival is a unique District (Civ6) District of the Brazilian civilization in Civilization VI. It replaces the Entertainment Complex.

  • Effects:
  • Restrictions:
    • Cannot be built if Copacabana has already been built in this city.


The following buildings can be constructed in a Street Carnival:


  • Carnival: Special Project which provides +1 additional Amenities6 Amenity while developed and earns Engineer6 Great Engineer, Merchant6 Great Merchant, Writer6 Great Writer, Artist6 Great Artist, & Musician6 Great Musician points upon completion.
  • R&F-Only Bread and Circuses: City project which increases the Loyalty pressure that this city exerts on itself and other cities nearby. While active, each of your Citizen6 Citizens here exerts +1 (or +0.5) Loyalty pressure to this city. This pressure also affects other cities within 9 tiles, but is 10% less effective per tile. Once completed, instantly gain +20 Loyalty in this city.


While it may at first appear to be very underwhelming, the Street Carnival is actually an incredibly versatile district that can keep up with a city's need for Amenities6 Amenities and GreatPerson6 Great People points. +2 Amenities6 Amenities rather than +1 and being 50% cheaper than the default Entertainment Complex means that even the newest cities can build them quickly and have their Amenities6 Amenity needs taken care of for a long time. If you come to think of it, it is a four times more effective entertainment complex, since it has half the cost and double amenities.

The Carnival Project provides +1 additional Amenities6 Amenity while developed, allowing Amenities6 Amenities from Luxury Resources to be given out to other cities that may need them more. The Carnival Project earns Engineer6 Great Engineer, Merchant6 Great Merchant, Writer6 Great Writer, Artist6 Great Artist, and Musician6 Great Musician points upon completion. The Writer6 Great Writer, Artist6 Great Artist, and Musician6 Great Musician points given are the same as if one had gained them through Theater Square Performances; and Engineer6 Great Engineer and Merchant6 Great Merchant points are half as much given if one had gained them through Industrial Zone Projects or Commercial Hub Investments. This makes it completely eclipse the Theater Square project, which becomes redundant for anything other than gaining Civ6Culture Culture.

Note that since Rise and Fall the Street Carnival gives access to two different projects, which makes it even more versatile. You can easily implement the Loyalty push strategy with it, because it is much cheaper to build than a normal Entertainment Complex, and Brazil would really benefit from it anyway.

Civilopedia entryEdit

Many cities have street carnivals – especially during the Christian season of Lent – but only Brazilians really know how to cast care to the wind during such festivals. Parades, concerts, performances, masques, and public banquets (along with liberal amounts of alcohol) fuel the celebrations. According to stuffy postmodern sociologists, Carnival as a social institution provides more than just a respite from the seriousness of urban life, it serves as a release for natural impulses that threaten the social order and allows marginalized groups to focus attention on social conflicts by embodying them in "senseless" activities. Whatever the truth of this interpretation, Rio de Janeiro's is the world's largest street carnival, hosting upwards of two million participants a day in recent years.
