Franco-Festival of 2024: a necessary pause for a brighter Future

Dear friends and festival-goers,

It is with great sadness that we announce the Franco-Festival of Thunder Bay will not take place in 2024. This decision, although difficult, is motivated by our desire to improve and expand this iconic event for the years to come.

Why This Decision?

We understand that this announcement may bring disappointment, especially after the many memorable editions we have shared together. However, our goal is to make the Franco-Festival an even bigger and more spectacular event. To achieve this, we need time to plan, organize, and implement significant improvements.

A Promise for the Future

We promise that the future Franco-Festival will be exceptional, filled with surprises and innovations. We are already working with experts to offer an enriched and varied program that will meet all expectations and bring together even more festival-goers.

A Long-Term Commitment

This pause will allow us to reassess and strengthen our infrastructure, attract new partners, and ensure that every aspect of the festival meets your expectations. We are convinced that this decision, although difficult, is for the greater good of the Franco-Festival and its community.

Thank You for Your Understanding and Support

We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to all our supporters, volunteers, partners, and festival-goers for their understanding and continued support. Your passion and commitment to the Franco-Festival are our main sources of motivation.

See you in 2025 for a Franco-Festival of Thunder Bay that will exceed all your expectations! We look forward to reuniting and celebrating Francophone culture together in all its splendor.

With all our gratitude,

The Franco-Festival of Thunder Bay Team
