Folklorama: 50 years of diversity!

Folklorama celebrates 50 years of legacy, tradition and the significant impact of celebrating diversity and promoting cultural understanding to all visitors from near or far. Folklorama continues to be a summer favourite, and has been enjoyed by hundreds of thousands of people continuously for five decades.

Folklorama began in 1970, intended one-time event to celebrate Manitoba's Centennial but has since grown to be the largest and
longest-running multicultural festival of its kind in the world! The 50th
edition of Folklorama runs from August 4th - 17th.

The Festival has become known for delicious food and drink, fantastic entertainment and informative cultural displays, but it is about so much more. Folklorama is about sharing stories and perspective, inclusion, acceptance, chance encounters, family tradition, and multi-generations of volunteers. But above all else it's about ethno-cultural communities coming together with pride to share their love of culture with each-other, festival-goers and visitors from afar, and doing so with open arms and hearts!

Many pavilions have children's activities to educate the younger visitors about culture. Experience this at the Scandinavian Pavilion, Spirit of Ukraine Pavilion, and United Kingdom Pavilion in Week One (August 4-10); And the Pearl of the Orient Philippine Pavilion, Punjab Pavilion, Romanian Pavilion, and Ukraine-Kyiv Pavilion in Week Two (August 11-17).

Children 12 and under are FREE when accompanied by an adult (limit of five children admissions per paid adult). Online ticket sales close an hour before your chosen pavilion show time.
