Slide background

JANUARY 27 AND 28, 2018

CanadaFest is the most important French Canadian festival in America, outside Quebec! It will take place this year on Saturday, January 27 and Sunday, January 28, 2018, directly on the Broadwalk of Hollywood Beach, as is the tradition. This annual festival has been organized for 35 years by LE SOLEIL DE LA FLORIDE and is sponsored in large part by the City of Hollywood as well as multiple Canadian and US companies. The Broadwalk is one of the last remaining beaches where you can walk along the sand during several miles without having buildings between you and the ocean. This walk was designed precisely to preserve the charm of the place, while having shops and restaurants that line the Broadwalk.
