Welcome to Festival du Bois

FdB Saw E

Festival du Bois is produced by the Société francophone de Maillardville and is the largest francophone event west of the Rockies. The festival brings together over 15,000 people from all over the lower mainland, and features exceptional artists such as De Temps Antan, Vishten and Yves Lambert.

Our 25th edition was a tremendous success and we would like to thank all of you: visitors, friends, sponsors, volunteers, local partners… A photo gallery from this year’s Festival can be found HERE. Please take a look through – maybe you will recognize yourself! Artist Gallery.

We will be back at Mackin Park next year from February 27 to March 1 2015 pour un weekend de folie with great music, amazing artists, outstanding performers, entertaining activities and authentic food.

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.

Check out our 2014 world-renowned performing artists and be assured that we will be inviting the same great caliber of artists for the 26th edition.

We look forward to welcoming you back at Mackin Park in March 2015 and should you want to get involved with us, please contact us directly at info@maillardville.com.

Dîner en Plaid a huge success!
A sincere thank you to everyone who participated at our first Festival du Bois fundraiser, Dîner en Plaid. With almost 150 people in the room and hundred plaid attire in the room, the evening was a smashing success – so much so that we are considering making it an annual event!
Thank you to all our Arm Wrestling and Double Buck Saw participants and congratulations to the winners: Vivian, Marc, Léo and James.
