Festival d’ete Vancouver – June 16 – 24, 2011

One of the many multicultural festivals happening in Vancouver this June is the annual Festival d’été, a Francophone music festival organized by Le Centre Culturel Francophone de Vancouver.

Packed with events that showcase the rich diversity in Francophone music, this year’s Festival d’été includes concerts from Quebec’s legendary rap trio Les Loco Locass and world-music from Blue Morocco, as well as a huge Saint Jean-Baptiste celebration on June 24 at Stanley Park’s outdoor Malkin Bowl with Piknic Électronik and their “electro stage.”

Most concerts during Festival d’été aren’t free, but the tickets are inexpensive, ranging from $15 – $30. There are two free events during the festival: two performances by Ensemble Maria Gianelli, a Latin-American trio that bring zest to tango, waltz and chamber music. (Details here.)

The Festival d’été Vancouver 2011 runs from June 16 – 24. For a complete schedule of events, see the official site.

    For the celebration on 7th ave on June 18th, ( Festival d’ete Vancouver – June 16 – 24, 2011) I can say that is was a total flop. usually the restaurant is open, usually they have wine ans usually they have a crowd. What happen this year , I have no idea , but I will think twice before going back as it was such a desapointment from the previous years. There were 14 of us and we all left before the end as there were no energy to this year celebration.
