Folklorama: Don’t you have any printer at home? Do not come to the festival!

The residents of Winnipeg faced problems with festival innovations.

Last year we managed to see 9 pavilions with pleasure. Some of them were great, some were not very good, but that's not the point. At the entrance to the pavilion, we purchased a family entrance ticket for 12 visits for $54. As we saw, it was special "Vickar Automotive Group Multi-pack". It was great to skate and choose pavilions for the evening. Concerts, turn, yummy, concert. Everything was fun and interesting.

This year there is a queue, but there are no tickets. Let's try to figure out what happened. This is commonplace greed.

So, to buy a family entrance ticket "Vickar Automotive Group Multi-pack" for 12 shows you need:

In 2017 - to come to any pavilion and to give $54


1. To pay $54 for tickets

2. To pay $12 for data processing (+ 22%)

3. To know exactly where and when you will go - what pavilion and what time

4. If you are late - the money is burned. You can not change the date, time or place of tickets.

5. If you met friends on the road and wanted to take them to the festival - it's not a fact that it will turn out.

6. To have a printer to print tickets.

7. If you do not have a printer, you need a smartphone with a PDF reader and the ability to upload a ticket to your smartphone.

The innovations are not so cool as it seems from the first sight! It is like buying an air ticket - date, time, place do not change, pay more, print it yourself. Traffic jams, change of plans and any other things are not interesting to the organizers.

It is a pity that the residents and guests of the city suffered from innovations. It is not understood why a tourist should run around the city and look for a printer.

At the official request, the representative of Folklorama Christa Mariash replied that they had increased support for those who have problems with the site (apparently, there are a lot of such people).

It is a big question whether it is profitable for the residents of the city or not.  However, Show must go on ... The second week of Folklorama promises to be no less interesting!

Winnipeg Transit
Updates On Rapid Transit In Winnipeg   Construction of Rapid Transit in Winnipeg continues, and there’s a lot to unpack.

We’re going to take a deep dive into the Southwest Transitway and then we’re going to take a look at some of the propo...
Winnipeg Residential Water And Waste Fees
The City of Winnipeg is in the process of debating an increase to water and waste rates. To understand the impact this potential increase could have, it’s important to look at a few factors. First, we will analyze how these fees are structured and what they fund. Then, we will look at why an increase is being proposed in the first place. Finally, it will be helpful to compare our fees to the fees in other Canadian cities, though this can be trickier than y...
Volunteers are really making a difference in helping those who are in need. We are talking homeless people, poor, sick, disabled, children without parents…, the list is endless, so each volunteer, each day and each hour they give and provide the service, really helps those people and the cities to stay cleaner and a better place to live in. Some Winnipeggers living in homeless camps just outside of the downtown core say they prefer the autonomy of the camp...

The budget cuts stem from a...
