HISTORY

Franco-Festival has been celebrated every two years since 2007.  Franco-Festival 2014 was a great success! Nearly 1500 people came to celebrate the French culture in Thunder Bay at the Sports Dome. There were people of all ages from Thunder Bay and other areas including Kapuskasing, Saint-Hyacinthe and Montreal. In addition, many people who did not speak French came to celebrate our culture.

Thanks to our many partners and sponsors we were able to organize a major festival. The atmosphere of the day will not soon be forgotten. The Franco-Festival Committee wishes to thank the hundreds of volunteers for their vital contribution to the success of the day. Hats off to you!

The Franco-Festival Committee worked very hard for two years to make this event an enjoyable time for everyone. We are proud to have received many positive and touching comments, it was a great personal experience, even after the Festival. It is fair and it is time to shout out loud "I am proud to be French". 

We hope to see you in September 2016.
