Opening Ceremony - Folklorama
6:30PM RBC Convention Centre Winnipeg
There is no better way to welcome you to Winnipeg than with the theme of our own world-renowned event: Folkorama! After a delicious sit-down dinner, prepare to be blown away by an unforgettable show from Winnipeg’s best performers. We sample the broad culture in Canada with the traditional “hopak” dance by the famous Troyanda Ukrainian Ensemble, Japanese Taiko Drumming by the Fubuki Daiko group, and many more! Celebrate your traditions beside many others and dress in traditional attire of your culture or explore new horizons! These groups will inspire you to stay and dance into the early morning with DJ music. If dressing up isn’t your thing, be yourself in semi-formal attire.
Get to know your colleagues on a night out in the heart of downtown Winnipeg. Citizen is known for their club dancing competitions but we are taking it over Thursday night, pharmacy style. If you aren’t up for dancing, be sure to take a trip to The Forks, just a short walk from the Delta Hotel, and go for a skate on Canada’s longest skating rink lit with creative lighting and ice sculptures. Hit up some local shops, visit the Museum of Human Rights, sample food from the hundreds of cultural restaurants, all just steps away.
