Coquitlam Celebrates Canada Day

FESTIVAL DU BOIS    Mar. 3, 4 & 5

TEDDY BEAR PICNIC & GRAND PARADE    June 11

Experience joie de vivre! Western Canada’s largest francophone festival offers a fun weekend of all things French Canadian. It showcases French traditions and culture in Canada including food, traditional music, entertainment and activities. Taking place at Mackin Park from March 3 – 5, this family-friendly festival has worldclass entertainment, plenty of activities for children, and music that may inspire dancing and singing. Tuck in to some traditional fare such as cheesy poutine, hearty tourtière or smoked meat sandwiches and the oh-so popular maple taffy. Oh—and be sure to wear plaid! This is in honour of the contributions of the lumberjacks who left Quebec in 1908 to start a new life in BC. festivaldubois.ca
