Welcome to the 34th Festival du Bois!
Maillardville's Music & Culture Festival
Join us March 24 – 26 in Mackin Park to experience brilliant music and dance concerts, shows where you can dance along, special performances for kids and families, workshops, roving on-site performers, delicious French Canadian food, artisan and exhibit booths – and more!
Visit the Métis Village Experience on-site for performances and stories – and an opportunity to learn more about Métis history, tradition and rich and dynamic culture.
Come to the Grand Chapiteau for concerts by Les Grands Hurleurs – the “great howlers” – playing traditional Québécois music that’s bursting with new ideas; sensational Senegalese soul-rocker, Élage Diouf; hip-swivelling, dance-floor-filling Brazilian dance music from Forró do Cana; Québécois music power trio, Genticorum; BC’s own Métis Jiggers; La Famille Léger’s French-Canadian and Acadian tunes, along with the galvanizing dance of Podorythmie; and, celebrating 50 years, Maillardville-based francophone choir, Les Échos du Pacifique.
As a bonus, we have some wonderful pre-festival events lined up. Join us and get in the Festival spirit!
In the Children’s Tent (Petit Chapiteau), see shows by Madame Diva, Will & Seeka, Seeka Sings, and Véronique’s Conte d’Afrique avec Mulungie. There are more surprises on site, too!
You're cordially invited to revel in an ambiance of friendship and warmth. Welcome to Maillardville, the cradle of francophone culture in BC. Help us celebrate Société francophone de Maillardville’s 40th anniversary!
