Youth Zone

Presented by 


Calling kids of all ages! 

The Youth Zone is a special area of the festival that’s full of great things for kids and families to do. Get your face painted courtesy of Conseil Scolaire francophone – École des Pionniers de Maillardville, then enjoy a fun performance in the Petit Chapiteau (Children’s Tent). New this year – try your hand at axe throwing, along with other fun activities.  We also have a new art project for you to take part in (see below!). 

There's lots more to do on site, including visiting the popular Vancouver Aquarium Aquavan and participating in a street hockey game sponsored by the Coquitlam Express hockey team. Stop by the Sugar Shack for some maple taffy on snow. And don't forget to keep your eyes peeled for Ernestine, our lovable mascot! 

Just up the hill from the Youth Zone, The Franco-Columbian Improv League (LIFC) is back this year to perform improv matches that are full of humour and energy. The improv teams are comprised of students attending francophone schools around BC, ready to compete to win the prestigious LIFC tournament. Learn more HERE.
