Our Folklorama bike tour

Let's do folklorama bike style! 
Grab your bikes and meet us at the first pavilion, then after each show we'll head on over to the others. It's only a 10-15 minute ride between each pavilion so it'll be pretty relaxed and faster than trying to find parking. It'll be dark after the second pavilion, so don't forget some bike lights. 

First pavilion: 6:45 show 
Andean Pavilion
- Notre Dame Recreational Centre 271 ave de la Cathedrale 

Second pavilion: 8:15 show 
Celtic Ireland Pavilion - Fort Garry Curling Club - 696 Archibald St

Third Pavilion: 9:45 show 
Pavilion of Scotland
- Glenwood Community Centre - 27 Overton St.
There is a late night party at the Scottish Pavilion starting at 11:00, so feel free to stay longer if you so desire. 


Andean Pavilion 
This new pavilion showcases the diverse and rich culture of the Andes, which extend along the western edge of South America through seven countries: Venezuela, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Argentina. The word ‘Andes’ derives from the Quechua word ‘anti’, which means ‘high crest’. Come and enjoy the unique dances, music, food and drinks of the South American Andes and enrich your knowledge by visiting our cultural display. Try our Peruvian cuisine and be sure to sample a Pisco Sour or borgoña with your meal. We hope you will take a little piece of the Andes home in your heart. 


Celtic-Ireland Pavilion 
Come for a wee visit and discover the magic that has proven year-after-year to be a fan favourite. Be prepared to be swept away by performers from The Brady Academy who will dazzle you with their award-winning Riverdance style footwork and choreography. Fancy a bite? Complete your Irish cultural adventure with a comforting selection of pub grub and a hot Irish coffee or a premium single malt Irish whiskey. Relax during the show with a perfect pint of Guinness, delivered straight from the heart of Dublin. Welcome back to Celtic Ireland – Slainte! 


Pavilion of Scotland
 
Come for the lively main stage show featuring the Flying Haggis Show Band and the Ena Sutton Highland Dancers of Winnipeg. Extend your stay for shows by the Manitoba Highland Dancers Association and guest pipe bands. Whet your appetite with authentic Scottish fare including the 'grand chieftain of the puddin’ race – haggis, and visit the Scotch Glen for a single malt. Learn about Scotland at our air-conditioned cultural display. Bring your children for special activities. Start the weekend early with special late night parties Thursday and Friday featuring special guest artists – My 3 Kilts brought here for your enjoyment.

    I would love to go. How do you get into the pavilions? Pay at the door?

      Yes, $6 at the door or $4.50 ($54 for 12) I will be looking on kijiji this week for cheap tickets, so I'll let you guys know if I get any. Otherwise we can all pitch in for a 12 pack which can be purchased at the door. It looks like the Andean pavilion accepts interac but the other two may be cash only. So I would advise you to bring cash for tickets and any food you'd like to purchase.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
