    Folklorama Winnipeg

    To those not from Southern Manitoba, the city of Winnipeg has long had an annual huge multicultural festival called Folklorama.

    http://www.folklorama.ca/

    It has grown to be a 2 week festival, with different cultural pavillions each week as there are simply too many to take in during a 1 week period.

    This week from Aug 10 - 16 there are the 2 pavillions that would be of most interest to those here:

    The Irish Celtic Pavillion
    http://www.folklorama.ca/112/179/54

    And, of course, the Pavillion of Scotland
    http://www.folklorama.ca/112/179/19
    http://www.pavilionofscotland.ca/

    Are there any locals planning to visit these this week? I want to hit both, and especially the Scottish Pavillion on Friday night as that's when they're having their ceilidh.

    I wish I could make it in for the event, Chris. Sadly it will not happen this year. Perhaps next.

    Oh yes, there were many kilts oot & aboot the nights I attended. The ceilidh was great fun with Celtic Rock bands hammering out their tunes.

    I'll definitely take in a couple evenings worth again this year.
