Folklorama is the largest and longest-running multicultural festival of its kind in the world. Over 40 volunteer-run pavilions participate each year, showcasing unique cultures in venues throughout Winnipeg. Pavilions feature lively entertainment, cultural displays, warm hospitality and authentic ethnic cuisine.

The festival was first held in 1970 and was originally intended to be a one-time event in celebration of Manitoba’s centennial. It was deemed such a success that it became an annual event.

Folklorama runs from August 6 to 19 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Over 400,000 people are expected to attend this year.
