Winnipeg is a cultural mosaic. There are people here from every part of the world. For the first two weeks of August each year, there is a two week long festival (called Folklorama) where 40 different nationalities present their cultures.
The two weeks are different because the pavilions change. In the first week, 20 different communities have pavilions, and in the second week, the other 20. Some of the communities represented include Belgian, Chiliean, Cuban, German, Greek, Hungarian, Indian, Irish, Israeli, Italian, Ukrainian, etc. etc. (It changes each year as the various Winnipeg communities decide whether to join in this year or not)
Each year in the 2nd/3rd weeks of February, the Festival du Voyageur celebrates the fur-trading history of Winnipeg. The festival is in St. Boniface (the French part of Winnipeg), and involves free music in temporary tents, winter games and Tours of Fort Gibraltar.
