Access Winnipeg has been out and about covering the two week festival of Folklorama. It is the largest cultural gathering in North America and a top tourist attraction.
The Israel pavilion at Folklorama 2016 was a lively and professional performance at the Rady Centre, a facility dedicated to Jewish culture and education. The singing and dancing and food was first rate and the crowd were too overflowing.
A number of pavilions each year show what dedicated volunteers and great commitment can bring to the festival each year.
Official Pavliion Information:
Asper Jewish Community Campus | 123 Doncaster St. (Located @ Tuxedo & Doncaster)
Fort Garry/River Heights
Let the beauty and culture of the land of Israel astound you. This small country is a combination of the ancient and the super modern and is steeped in history and tradition. When you visit the Israel pavilion and watch the internationally renowned Sarah Sommer Chai Folk Ensemble, you’ll experience the best in Israeli folklore and culture through music, song and dance. Come and taste falafel (chick pea balls), pita, hummus, plus potato bourekas along with a glass of imported wine, Maccabee beer, Sabra Orange Liqueur or arak. Interac and credit cards are accepted for food purchases. Admissions are cash only.
