Here are some frequently asked questions to assist in your planning!


What’s new at Folklorama this year?

Stay tuned!

When I purchase my ticket, does that guarantee me a seat?

When you purchase your ticket, you are guaranteed entry but not a seat. We strongly recommend arriving 30-40 minutes before your show time to get a seat. If you prefer reserved seating, we recommend you go on one of the V.I.P. tours. To learn more about our V.I.P. Tour offerings, click here.

Can I show up at any Folklorama Pavilion and buy my tickets at the door?

Yes, you may purchase tickets at the door of any of our Pavilions as long as they still have tickets available. To guarantee entrance into a Pavilion, we encourage you to purchase tickets online in advance. Please note: tickets are sold online up to one hour before the show.

I want to bring a tour group into Winnipeg to visit the Festival, and I’m looking for more day time activities to add to our itinerary. Do you have any advice?

You are in luck! We are your one-stop-shop. Our Group Sales advisors can plan your entire itinerary from start to stop – including hotel! Contact our Group Sales advisors to get your trip planning started.

I realize each Pavilion is at a different venue, but what is the accessibility like for each?

2022 Accessibility Guide coming soon.

I love a dish I had at one of your Pavilions. How can I get the recipe?

I won a contest through a local media outlet. How do I claim my prize?
