Folklorama has been voted the ‘top event’ throughout Canada in the third annual up! magazine Value Awards.
The magazine narrowed down 17 of North America’s best travel values — from attractions and restaurants to spas and festivals.
Other 2010 Canadian winners were:
Top Voted Attraction West Edmonton Mall Edmonton, AB Top Voted Restaurant Atlas Café Courtenay, BC Top Voted Outdoor Attraction Grouse Mountain Vancouver, BC Top Voted Hotel Rocking R Guest Ranch Strathmore, AB Top Voted Spa Kingfisher Oceanside Courtenay, BC Resort & Spa
The top voted U.S. attraction was Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida.
The up! magazine value award winners are chosen by thousands of WestJet guests who read the in-flight publication.
This year’s Folklorama runs from August 1 to 14.
On July 15, Manitoba’s Troyanda Ukrainian Dance Ensemble — the same dance troupe performing at Folkorama — will embark on a 12-day tour of Colombia’s Caribbean coast, representing Manitoba, Canada, and their Ukrainian heritage.
