Vacay.ca Recommends Folklorama
If you’re headed to the ‘Peg, be sure to schedule your visit to coincide with Folklorama, billed as the world’s largest and longest-running multicultural festival. Since 1970, Winnipeg has been celebrating its various ethnic communities. This year’s edition runs from August 4-17 and will have more than 40 pavilions devoted to the dozens of ethnicities in the city. That inclusiveness makes Folklorama a contemporary a celebration of today’s Canada.
Vacay.ca listed Folklorama as an Editors’ Pick for August festivals in 2012 and we are certain to do so again. This two-week extravaganza full of ethnic richness and traditions is a sensation, and perhaps Winnipeg’s biggest attraction. It annually attracts more than 400,000 revellers.
