Festival du Bois is one of the Tri-Cities’ biggest annual events, attracting crowds to Maillardville for a celebration of Coquitlam’s French Canadian heritage.

And it takes a large, dedicated team to make it happen.

Thus, organizers of the 24th Festival du Bois, scheduled for March 2 and 3, are looking for volunteers to help.

The Francophone Centre of Maillardville is seeking volunteers who are motivated and available to  participate at the following activities: site set-up, the welcoming/information booth, security, traffic/parking, puppets, preparation and selling poutine, serving and cleaning.

To apply, email reception@maillardville.com before end of January — and make sure to indicate whether you have expertise in a specific area that might be helpful to the festival.
