This year, BC's largest and most popular celebration of francophone music and culture presents a dynamic roster of music artists from BC, Quebec and beyond in Maillardville/Coquitlam's Mackin Park. The big heated tents will host some of the finest Québécois, francophone, and roots music artists around. From March 22 to 25, the festival welcomes outstanding music artists and groups Le Vent du Nord, Bon Débarras, Les Chauffeurs à pieds, Mazacote, Jacky Essombe, Gabriel Debreuil, Blackthorn, and Podorythmie, The Sybaritic String Band and others.

On Main Stage in the Grand Chapiteau (Big Tent), in the Children's Tent (AKA Petit Chapiteau) and at Workshops in Mackin House adjacent to the park, the festival presents tradition-based music and dance along with original and contemporary sounds and performance. Festival visitors also enjoy roving performers, exhibits, participatory activities, traditional food, shopping and more.
