Maillardville's Music Festival

The 33rd edition of Festival du Bois returns live to Mackin Park in Coquitlam for a weekend of brilliant folk, roots, global and Québécois music from French Canada and beyond. After a highly successful online event in 2021, in-person audiences can expect an enthusiastic“welcome back”for concerts and more in the Grand Chapiteau (big tent) and other venues in Mackin Park, Coquitlam. Not only does the festival present some of Canada’s finest music artists at a very affordable ticket price, it offers engaging entertainment especially for kids and families, on-site performers, workshops, fabulous food, a market area, and a wealth of bon esprits.

“We can’t wait to see everyone again in Mackin Park. This year’s festival offers folks the chance to gather together safely, experience an eclectic range of great music, and celebrate - in person. Come join us!" – Joanne Dumas, Executive and Artistic Director read welcome messages
