Magazine Votes Folklorama Top Event in Canada

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.
