Various Venues Around Winnipeg
Sunday, August 05, 2012 to Saturday, August 18, 2012
Folklorama is a two-week multicultural festival that features more than 40 pavilions each August.
Half of the pavilions operate in week 1 of the festival and the other half of pavilions operate in week 2. The festival is mostly an evening festival though there are some matinee shows on the weekends (all show times are in the Travel Guide). There are pavilions located throughout the city of Winnipeg - the locations are all mapped out in the centre of the Folklorama Travel Guide.
The official Travel Guide is your most important tool. Hard copies of the Travel Guide are available at Winnipeg locations of Manitoba Liquor Marts and Cambrian Credit Unions, leading Manitoba hotels and attractions, as well as Travel Manitoba tourism offices.

Tips for a First Timer:
A typical festival goer will want to visit 3 pavilions in an evening and try out at least 3 to 6 pavilions in each week of the two week festival.
Your best plan is to pick a pavilion you know you want to visit, locate it on the map and find two additional pavilions close by that you can visit for your second and third visit of the night.
Go hungry so you can try an appetizer at the first, dinner at the second and a dessert at the last pavilion.
How Folklorama works:
All pavilions offer standard show times at 6:45, 8:15 and 9:45pm from Sunday to Saturday, but pavilions often add shows so make sure to check the Guide for additional show times.
