Program Title: RVF 2016-2017 - Week 18 Jan 2 to Jan 8 2017
Description: A show about French culture in the community. Its everywhere and you may not know it. There are French association in our community that arrange francophone activities and events year long. Events for all ages. As well, there are French language schools scattered all across Ontario Franco Fest in Hamilton is one such Festival. It offers activities for children and adults, vendors, and arts. This past year amongst the performers were Louis-Jean Cormier, Radio Radio, Monogrenad, Cécile Dookingué, and local acro circus performers. Listen to the wonderful journey of sound from the song composite, as it takes you to another world. The band Monogrenad has that feel to their music.

Closer to Guelph is the Association Francophone de Kitchener-Waterloo. They organize events and hold club meetings for the Francophones in the community. They also organize a festival in the summer that is open to the public. There is something for every francophone or Francophile in the area. This past year marked their 10th anniversary, and they had performances all year round to celebrate. One of the performing groups was the trio Genticourm, a traditional folk group from Quebec. Let their song canot d’éccorse send you back to the time of the settlers and the fir trade.
