An Idea was Born over 40 years ago

Folkorama  is the largest and longest-running multicultural Festival of its kind in the world.  Folklorama began in  1970 and the Irish Association boasts to have been involved within 3 years of its conception.  You just can't beat the hospitality of the Irish Pavilion . We showcase the McDonnell School of Dance, Traditional Music and brilliant talent directly from Ireland.  Our cultural centre enlightens all to life in Ireland,  past and present. Your senses will be perked to the aroma of homemade Irish stew, soda bread, colcannon and much more to tempt your taste buds. Sure, it will be fun and you can't leave the Pavilion without raising a Pint of Guinness and tapping your feet to the amazing music and dance.  See you all in August for some Great Craic!

Featured Artists

McDonnell School of Irish Dance

The McDonnell School of Irish Dance performs throughout the year at concerts and festivals in Canada and the United States. They strive to promote Irish Culture through the beauty of dance. They perform traditional Irish step dancing, ceili, and modern Irish choreography. They also compete across North America and have won numerous medals and trophies for their solo and group performances. The dancers are brought together by a love for this form of Irish cultural expression and the enjoyment they get from sharing it with others. Classes are available for all ages and are taught by Maire McDonnell Prokopowich TCRG.
