Bonjour! Welcome!

Bonjour, welcome back to Festival du Bois!

Everyone at Festival du Bois is so happy to once again invite you back to our community of Maillardville/Coquitlam and our festival home in Mackin Park. Greetings!

We said au revoir in March 2020 just before the worldwide pandemic became a tough reality, and came back virtually in 2021 to give you a taste of our “Frenchness”. We were thrilled that more than 13,000 viewers tuned in to get their sweet dose of French Canadian music and culture with us. We were so
pleased to offer it to you!

This year we will bring back the same “joie de vivre” you have grown used to over the last 33 years – live and in person. How exciting is that? Our team is dedicated to reviving all your senses after a period that has seen so many changes and losses for both you and the artistic communities here and beyond. This year, families will be back and get to spend a joyful time together and with the community. Festival du Bois will infuse your senses with a return to great music brought to you by amazing artists who will get you singing along, tapping your toes and enticing you back to the dance floor. That’s a promise!

Our team has worked hard to bring you the best in entertainment and warm hospitality. Join us for music, dance, food, laughter, and the promise of great memories to be made!

On behalf of myself, our devoted team of volunteers, staff and Board - welcome back!

We all need more celebration in our lives right now so what a treat to be able to enjoy a Francophone music festival in Maillardville! With the best musicians, artisans, and French-Canadian culture on display, Festival du Bois brings so much happiness to attendees from far and wide. A heartfelt thank you to Société Francophone de Maillardville, all the volunteers, and everyone involved, for bringing some fun in to our lives again this year. Wishing you all a wonderful and festive weekend.
