“Get your French on” at this year’s Festival du Bois!
Every year, Coquitlam/Maillardville, the oldest and largest francophone community in BC, welcomes young and old to a celebration of traditional and world music, all with a French twist!
For the past 25 years, Festival du Bois, the largest and most attended francophone festival on the West Coast, has delivered great performances from Canada and beyond, while also, sharing the community’s joie de vivre, through great food and its unique hospitality. This event is produced by Société francophone de Maillardville, whose mandate is to promote and facilitate access to arts and culture in French, in Maillardville/Coquitlam and its region.
When: From February 26 to March 1 2015
Where: Mackin Park, 1046 Brunette Ave, Maillardville/Coquitlam
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.
