Take home a keepsake of your visit by exploring the cultural display areas found in each pavilion.
Folklorama began in 1970 as a one time multicultural event to celebrate Manitoba's Centennial. It was so successful it has returned every year since then.
In 1970, the festival was only 7 days long with 21 pavilions participating. Since then the festival has grown to two full weeks with 20-plus pavilions open in week 1 and a second set of 20 pavilions running in week 2. Today, the fesitval typically draws about 425, 000 pavilion visits plus 15, 000 visitors to the Kick-Off event held the night before pavilions open.
