The festival is back live!
FROM 16 to 19 SEPTEMBER 2021

Francophonie en Fête is pleased to present the finalized programming of the 16th edition of its festival. It will be held in person from September 16 to 19, 2021, at the Timber Mezzanine located on The Bentway, 250 Fort York, Toronto under the Gardiner Highway at Strachan Avenue, with a stage and covered outdoor platform. A terrace fitted out to serve beers and ciders will also be offered to festival-goers.
We are delighted to finally be able to welcome the public for this return to live French music after 18 months of the pandemic, even if it is accompanied by understandable health measures!
The Francophonie en Fête concerts will take place in complete safety in accordance with the sanitary and distancing measures in force in Toronto.
In order to comply with guidelines from the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health, all visitors, artists and staff will be asked to complete a COVID screening questionnaire before entering the festival area. These questions will be mandatory for each new entry, even for people who have already been vaccinated. In order to answer this questionnaire and to facilitate reception of the public, the use of a cell phone will be required to scan a QR code which will be displayed near the entrance to the festival. Paper versions will also be available.
Failure to comply with screening and tracing requirements may result in visitors being denied entry to the festival area.
During these four days, we will present 26 free diversified shows between 12:00 pm and 6:00 pm. The rhythms of La Francophonie in all its forms will be represented with artists representing the extent of Franco-Ontarian multicultural diversity, including some from Africa, Haiti and the Caribbean.
Come and celebrate with us this return to live French music, after 18 months of pandemic!
