Who we are

Established in 1959, the Fogolar Association of Winnipeg is a non for profit cultural/social organization comprised of members who originate from the Friuli Venezia Giulia and the Veneto Regions of Italy.

The word Fogolar means “Fireplace” in the Friulano language, a gathering place where our grand-fathers and grand-mothers would gather, cook their meals, keep warm, tell stories – where they would dream about their future, laugh and cry! Hence our Fogolar here in Manitoba emulates the gathering place around the flaming blaze.
