Saturday, June 15
Our second guest Artistic Director, Isabelle Longnus has brought together some of the great voices for a show that will have festival-goers getting rather emotional, while at the same time singing along throughout this magical evening. Mélissa Ouimet, Patrice Michaud, Brigitte Boisjoli, Mehdi Cayenne, Pierre Guitard and Zaza Finger will be gracing the AIR CANADA Main Stage under the musical direction of Antoine Gratton. And for the icing on the cake, one of the greatest voice of Canada’s Francophonie, the famous DIANE DUFRESNE will join the show to not only share the stage with all the other artists, but also will present her paintings on UNIS TV’s giant screens, all orchestrated by DJ UNPIER himself, serving as the VJ for the evening. .

Family program for Saturday, June 15

Kids will have their own moment amidst all of that outstanding program lineup, as a Saturday matinée co-presentation by the Conseil des écoles publiques de l’Est de l’Ontario and the Conseil des écoles catholiques du Centre-Est. Our young festival-goers and their parents will be treated to shows by Arthur l’Aventurier and the famous Caillou. And to top it all off, there will be extravagant face paintings by Kromatik, zany entertainers, inflatable structures…well, really whatever it takes to bring a smile to our little tykes’ faces on June 15.

“See you at the Franco!”

Alongside all of these terrific activities, there will be a new feature, the “See you at the Franco!” evenings. These VIP evenings will be an opportunity for Ottawa’s French high school alumni to gather and reconnect with former fellow students, and to celebrate our rich Francophone culture as a family. Entertainment, souvenirs, pep rallies and lots and lots of laughter will be on the program for this new tradition, which is about to become one of the essential Festival Franco-Ontarien TekSavvy highlights.
