Excellent show including world famous Gopak dance. Entertainment at every corner. Authentic Ukrainian food, lots of perogies, kolbassa, deserts. Souvenirs. And, actually, you can go there every day, as the performers change daily.

Just an absolute must if you are in Winnipeg in August. The venues are varied,the entertainment is amazing and the food is delicious. VIP treatment is a must where you are bussed to your location,have a meal and enjoy the culture. Pavilions represent an enormous number of cultures.

You can easily do two shows a night, dont worry about the line ups,most of the bigger venues can handle it. I wont rate the Pavilions ,pick any and you will enjoy. The Pavilions tend to cluster close together mainly, and St. Boniface is a good area to try.

It is staffed by volunteers who have originated in these... More

This is especially a fun event for those who can not afford to travel all over the world - it gives you a taste of their foods, beverages and entertainment. Sometimes the lineup are long if you attend individually but if you go on a bus tour - you get priority entrance and seating. Well worth the cost of the... More

We have been to several pavilions over the years and each one is excellent! They show the culture, food and have great entertainment that is exclusive to that country or region.
