Started in 1970 as a onetime multicultural event celebrating the Manitoba’s centennial, today it has grown in to a 2 week celebration that highlights the cultural diversity and ethnic unity of the people who have made Winnipeg their home. Folklorama features native folklore, ethnic cuisine, artifacts, souvenirs from the number of different countries, and is been run in two stages. The first week presents more than 20 pavilions in the downtown area as well as around the city, and the second week features 20 plus pavilions showcasing the different corners of the world.
Folklorama typically attracts more than 425,000 pavilion visitors, and 15,000 for the kick-off! Among the most conveniently located downtown Winnipeg hotels is The Marlborough Hotel.
