If you’re a fan of French Canadian grub, we have got the perfect event for you!
The 29th annual Festival du Bois is happening from March 23 to 25 in Coquitlam’s Mackin Park, and aside from being a grand celebration of all things in francophone culture, it’s also the best place to get all the drool-worthy French Canadian eats we love.
The festival opens on Friday night, March 23, and will feature a whole range of traditional Québécois dishes like tourtière, poutine, maple sugar pie, bread and pork pâté, pea soup, and the celebration’s meat-packed Lumberjack plate (tourtière, pork and beans, coleslaw, bread, pork meat pâté).
Attendees can also enjoy the festival’s signature French Lumberjack Ale from Yellow Dog Brewing.
Other foodie highlights include the André Beauregard Sugar Shack, which will be making maple taffy on snow, and on Sunday, March 25 at 10 am there will be a $7 pancake breakfast.
If you live in Metro Vancouver, this event sounds like a great way to eat your way through the weekend.
