WINNIPEG, MB – June 8th, 2021 – Let’s be honest. It has been a rough 15 months for everyone. But fear not! There is something to look forward to in August!
“Folklorama is the world’s largest and longest running multicultural festival of its kind, celebrating culture for over 50 years,” states Teresa Cotroneo, Executive Director, Folklorama. “After having to cancel the 51st Festival in 2020 due to COVID-19, and indicators pointing to another year where producing an in-person festival would not be possible, we will continue to celebrate Manitoba’s diversity, in a way only Folklorama knows how. Save the dates August 6th to 8th, 2021.
