Go to Wikipedia:

The 2016 Summer Olympics, officially known as the Games of the XXXI Olympiad, is a major international multi-sport event due to be celebrated in the tradition of the Olympic Games, as governed by the International Olympic Committee (IOC).

The host city of the Games will be Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as announced at the 121st IOC Session (which is also the 13th Congress) held in Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 2, 2009.

They are scheduled to be held from August 5 to 21, 2016, which is actually during the winter in the southern hemisphere. However, since Rio de Janeiro is inside the tropics this period will not see the cold winter weather associated with more polar latitudes.
