5th Annual Marche francais/French Marketplace 2010

Sunday, March 28th, 2010

This event is a hop, skip and a jump from the Fraser Valley.  We think it sounds like a fantastic event for families, Francophones, teachers and others.

Canadian Parents for French – New Westminster Chapter is preparing for the 5th Annual Marché français/French Marketplace.

Come and experience a bit of French culture at the Marché français. Meet vendors of hard-to-find French resources (books, music, electronics, games and more) and interesting French-themed items.

Listen to French and French-Canadian accordion music performed by Chris Messytone (4 pm – 6 pm) while enjoying delicious crêpes and maple treats. There will be a children’s activity and craft area as well as a raffle. Admission is free. Everyone is welcome!
