Société francophone de Maillardville runs events throughout the year in our Maillardville community to celebrate everything Francophone. Join us at these special events to dig deeper into the francophone culture, to meet some amazing people, to discover the historical heritage of Maillardville or simply to have lots of fun!





Festival du Bois combines a world-calibre music festival with an entertaining and affordable family-friendly community celebration. Wander the expansive park-site to gain new insights in Maillardville and its history, watch ice carvers in action, participate in fun activities, shop, and indulge your taste buds with delicious tourtière, maple taffy on snow, homemade poutine and other fare. Under the roofs of the massive Grand Chapiteau (Main Tent) and Tente des enfants (Children’s Tent) experience great music and dance that stirs the heart. All ages and cultures are welcome to come and share a bit of old-fashioned joie de vivre!
