In 1970, the Folklorama festival was only 7 days long with 21 pavilions participating. Since then, the festival has grown to two full weeks with 20-plus pavilions open in Week 1 and a second set of 20 pavilions running in Week 2. Today, the festival typically draws about 425,000 pavilion visits plus 15,000 visitors to Folklorama Kick-off held the day before pavilions open.
