Folklorama Fusion featured three evenings of spectacular performances by many cultural associations and dance groups that normally come together every August for a two-week cultural event. Due to the pandemic and easing of public health orders, performances were able to happen but reduced indoor gatherings limited the opportunity for a full fledged Folklorma pavilion experience that many of us are used to. Instead, performances were streamed live from the Burton Cummings Theatre on Folklorama’s YouTube channel.
All three nights of entertainment can be viewed on Folkloram’s YouTube channel. Enjoy the three great shows!
