Don’t miss our annual francophone gathering brought to you this year in a unique digital format!
Centre francophone Hamilton is proud to announce that FrancoFEST is returning this year with a unique format. In order to adapt to the current conditions, the festival will morph into a surprising and entertaining variety show, featuring well-known and talented francophone artists and, as always, showcasing local artists.
In collaboration with Le Réveil, the festival will be broadcasted live on Facebook, Youtube, Le Réveil’s website and mobile application. FrancoFEST will be broadcasted by Le Réveil during an international event taking place all day on June 19th, with artists and audiences plugged in from all over Canada, Europe and Africa.
The festival's steering committee is proud to announce the 2020 special interactive lineup. Adding his usual touch of humour and musical talent, showman/singer/comedian Stef Paquette (ON) will be your host for the event. Our special guest singer-composer Mélissa Ouimet (ON), will be live for a Q&A session with the audience followed by an acoustic performance. Franco-ontarian folk- trad band Moonfruits (ON) and Montreal-based Haitian artist Wesli (QC) will both be delighting us with their presence. To learn more about our guests, please check the Lineup tab.
Our program will also feature fun community activities such as video submission presentation, interviews between artists and our audience, video-clip presentations and a class of 2020 slide show !
Don’t miss out on this year’s francophone cultural and social connection,
brought to you for the first time online!
