A new website will help individuals navigate every corner of the globe this summer.
Folklorama recently celebrated the launch of its new website, which developed in partnership with Web Wizards. Organizers say the new website will help individuals plan their festival experience when Folklorama returns for the 45th time between Aug. 3 and 16 at 43 pavilions across the city.
"Folklorama is such a unique brand in the community and our new website reflects that," said Folklorama’s executive director Debra Zoerb in a news release. "Our site is chock full of vibrant photos, festival information, a pavilion search function, plus a lot of information on our year-round programs: Folklorama Talent, Teaching and Travel."
"Our website is fully responsive, meaning that you can learn more about Folklorama on your desktop computer, tablet or smartphone. We are really excited to offer this level of functionality to both the public and our membership," Zoerb added.
Folklorama has traditionally held several pavilions in southeast Winnipeg. Last year’s venues included Holy Cross Gym, Centre culturel franco-manitobain, Fort Garry Curling Club, Notre Dame Community Centre, Heather Curling Club, Glenwood Community Centre and the Belgian Club.
This year’s pavilion information is currently being finalized and detailed descriptions will be uploaded to the website regularly, organizers say.
