Folklorama 2011 is a wrap until that time of year comes again. The time of year where we can celebrate the diversity of the beautiful world we live in. The time of year where for two weeks, we can travel the world without leaving the city.

The Folklorama experience is something all us Winnipegers are fortunate to have. If you weren’t able to live it yet, make sure you do next year.

Folklorama 2011 Numbers:
* Approximately 432,000 visits to 45 pavilions from July 31 to August 13
* One hundred and seventeen group tours visited the festival, including 13 from the United States, two from Japan and 45 from Folklorama’s VIP World Tour program
* Folklorama Kick-off on July 30, had an estimated 20,000 people in attendance as The Forks
* The new Folklorama iPhone/iPod/iPad app was downloaded 5,527 times

Folklorama 2012 will be held August 5 to 18. See you all there!
