As a first timer to the gala events you may be interested in some practical travel tips to the festivities, which occur every night at each of the 40 pavilions. First of all a typical festival gore will want to visit 3 pavilions in a typical evening and try out at least 3 to 6 venues during each of the two weeks of the full Folkorama event. Of course you can choose to spend your whole vacation during the Folkorama events, a week or even a portion of your holiday travel time period. Your best plan is to pick a pavilion that you know that you want to visit, locate it on the map. Next find one or two additional pavilions close by that you can visit for your second or third outing of the evening’s entertainment production.
One of the most notable hallmarks of Folkorama is the unique, varied and tasty foods and beverages available. Meals, beverages, beers and wines from around the globe. All in the nearby and safe settings of Winnipeg Canada. Why travel afar? Go hungry so that you can try an appetizer at the first visit, dinner at the second and a desert at the pavilion where you revel and relish the last show of the evening.
