Festival du Bois returns for its 28th year with an amazing roster of music artists and other performers slated to grace the stages of the big heated tents at Mackin Park in Maillardville, the centre of francophone culture in B.C. Rooted in the French-Canadian community and heritage of the Maillardville area in Coquitlam, Festival du Bois is the largest and most popular celebration of francophone music, dance, craft, food, and culture in BC.

The festival opens Friday night, March 3, with a Contra Dance in the Grand Chapiteau (Big Tent) in Mackin Park, with live music by The Sybaritic String Band. On Saturday and Sunday, March 4 and 5, the festival welcomes outstanding music artists from BC to Cape Breton and beyond. 2017 music groups include: Suroît, Mélisande, Nicolas Pellerin et les Grands Hurleurs, Podorythmie, Zal Sissokho and Buntalo, Jeremiah McLane, and Jocelyn Pettit among others.

On festival weekend, audiences of all ages can also enjoy on-site roving performances, workshops, Children's Tent performances, exhibits, participatory activities and more.
