It’s the August before Autumn! Summer is almost over, so I need to get out and do something. If this thought came to your mind this past weekend, you are not alone! There is me, and I’m sure there are a few more out there.

Winnipeg has the shortest yet hottest summer – it’s beautiful, eventful and sunny as any tropical land can get. As well, the culture, music, food and people are all the great things Winnipeg has to offer. And if you don’t get to experience, you are going to miss out for sure!

FOLKLORAMA- August 6- 19: every globetrotter’s dream!

Whether you are a globetrotter, or someone who dreams about travel, or simply want to have a great time, Folklorama gives you a chance to see it all in one city. From Brazilian capoeira dancers, soul-soothing Japanese music, energetic african drums, to fun filled afterparties with music, dance and everything summer festival needs, it’s all just in Winnipeg. You even get to send a prayer note all the way to Jerusalem through the Israeli pavilion, or learn some cuban tango, have a beer or two in german style, tap dance your way home and wake up your neighbours. So all I got to say is, don’t miss this fantastic cultural celebrations. Check out the Folklorama Pavilion Guide for pavilion information.
