chinese pavilion: Folkfest executive director Terresa DeMong was excited to be a part of the festival this year, getting to highlight its history and the decades of volunteers that have helped share culture throughout Saskatoon, according to CTV. We've had over 50 different cultures participate, 100,000 volunteers, and a million passports DeMong said. Venues were spread out all around the city hosting pavilions from different countries selling food, drinks, wares, and even putting on performances.
