Welcome to FESTIVAL DU BOIS 2017!

The 28th annual Festival du Bois runs March 3 – 5 at Mackin Park in the Maillardville area of Coquitlam, the centre of francophone culture in BC, and you're invited!

It's a weekend celebration of francophone and French Canadian culture – the largest in BC. Come for amazing music and dance, great traditional food, shows for kids, entertaining activities, and so much more.

The festival opens on Friday night, March 3, with a Contra Dance in the Grand Chapiteau (Big Tent) in Mackin Park, with live music by The Sybaritic String Band.

On Saturday and Sunday, March 4 and 5, the festival welcomes outstanding music artists from BC to Cape Breton and beyond, including Suroît, Mélisande, Nicolas Pellerin et les Grands Hurleurs, Podorythmie, Zal Sissokho and Buntalo, Jeremiah McLane, and Jocelyn Pettit

Everyone is welcome to our fun, affordable, family-friendly event! Come visit our community, and learn more about French Canadian culture and roots in BC.
