The largest bilingual festival on Vancouver Island!

In February of every year, Nanaimo pulsates with the rhythm of the Maple Sugar Festival du Sucre d'Érable. This festival is indeed one-of-a-kind: a bilingual event inspired by eastern Canada's sugar shack traditions. Over the course of three days, festivities include a variety of activities to delight visitors: exciting performances by a diverse range of musicians, dancers, and street entertainers - without forgetting authentic, traditional French Canadian food fare, notably the decadently sweet sugar toffy on snow. Come to Nanaimo and discover our Festival's truly special ambiance, our joie de vivre, and our warm hospitality.
