  • Print

For the next two weeks, feel free to travel the globe without paying for airfare. The 45th annual Folklorama festival kicked off on Sunday.

With 19 pavilions in its first week, August 3 to 9, and 24 pavilions in its second, August 10 to 16, Folklorama offers an immersive look at 43 different cultures through elaborate performances and delicious cuisine.

Folklorama was voted the most popular Manitoba festival in a recent poll by Prairie Research Associates; 43 per cent of people surveyed said they planned to attend Folklorama this year.

New to the festival this year are the Andean and United Kingdom pavilions. Both are being presented in the second week of Folklorama.

The Argentina "Tango" Pavilion and the Chinese Pavilion are also coming back to Folklorama this year after brief hiatuses.

Free Folklorama travel guides can be picked up at any MLCC store or downloaded online here.

For a sneak peek at what Folklorama’s pavilions have to offer this year, watch the Free Press News Cafe’s series of videos, Random Acts of Folklorama, available below.
