Fête franco-albertaine

The Francophonie thrives through activities held in communities across the province throughout the year, including the annual provincial festival, la Fête franco-albertaine.

Les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie

Every year, French-speaking communities across Canada celebrate les Rendez-vous de la Francophonie (RVF), a month-long celebration of French cultures and history. In Alberta, events include Franco-Albertan flag-raising  ceremonies at the Legislature and in municipalities across the province in early March. Attendees can also participate in sugar shacks, musical and theatrical performances, and other community gatherings.
