Winnipeg is a city defined by diversity, from early European settlers to inter-continental newcomers. Never is this more clear than during the first two weeks of August, when the world’s largest and longest-running multicultural festival brings out the best food, dance, music and stories of our people. This year’s celebration runs from August 4th-17th.
Folklorama is best experienced through what locals lovingly call “pavilion-hopping”. Winnipeg’s cultural communities span the continents, and multiple stops are a must to delve deeper into the city’s vast global makeup. The annual venue map is an indispensable resource for navigating through the wealth of options, and Folklorama’s pre-arranged walking, biking and bus tours are a valuable go-to if uncertain where to start.
Tickets: $6/pavilion; $54/12-pack
VIP Tours: $39.95-74.95/person (includes 2-3 pavilions)
