French-Canadians open up their arms with warm hospitality at the Pavilion canadian-français this week. Montreal dance troupe Zogma provides entertainment along with on-site musicians from the local French community. Meal items include the famous tourtière meat pie, creton (pork pâte) and sugar pie. Of course just like at Festival du Voyageur, you can get a cold glass of caribou or maple coffee to wash it all down.
