From February 28 to March 2
At Mackin Park, 1046 Brunette Avenue, Coquitlam
Festival du Bois, the largest francophone festival on Canada’s West Coast, is celebrating its 25th Anniversary!
Come to commemorate the Festival’s first quarter century with great music, amazing artists, outstanding performers, entertaining activities and authentic food.
There is a long French-Canadian pioneering heritage and logging-based history in Maillardville, reflected in the culture and strength of the community today – a vibrant and cosmopolitan centre with connections across Canada and beyond. This year’s programming reflects it all and the festival is pleased to present an eclectic gathering of the finest Québécois, francophone, folk, world and roots artists performing today.
Over the weekend, audiences can expect to learn more about Maillardville and its village, participate in fun activities, bring back some souvenirs and maple syrup, and indulge the taste buds with delicious tourtière, maple taffy on snow, homemade poutine and other tasty francophone and world fare. Or you can just relax with a beverage and enjoy some great tunes!
