FLAUNT YOUR FRENCHNESS
Flaunt your Frenchness encourages you to celebrate all that is French in you! Those little words like déja-vu, your easy sense of fashion, your unending love for cheese and wine, your “joie de vivre” or it could simply be your passion for the Montreal Canadians even when the Canucks are stepping on the ice.

The festival features exceptional artists such as De Temps Antan, Vishten and Yves Lambert while sharing the community’s Joie de vivre, through great food and its unique hospitality.
