You could find everything besides a massive cheese wheel at the Francophone pavilion on opening night of the Saskatoon FolkFest.
With the parking lot jam packed and cars lined up all along Louise Street in front of Ecole Canadienne-Francaise were hungry FolkFest passport holders ready to take in the French culture.
With a menu consisting of the French staples, guests had a tough time picking between the traditional meat pie to a classic poutine; chefs also offered up a vegetarian crepe and quiche.
That’s only where guests started. Making their way through to the school’s gym people were greeted with French arts and crafts, maple-syrup candies, a table of chocolates provided by Harden & Huyse and dessert crepes.
For guests who came a little more thirsty than hungry, they were spoiled with a stacked bar filled with French beers including Kronenbourg Blanc, Blanche de Chambly and Don De Dieu. The bar also featured exotic mixes like champagne, cognac and Saskatoon berry cocktails.
Holding the exciting and busy pavilion was a musical stage featuring the Saskatoon Fiddle Orchestra, a performer known as the Hula Hoopster and Les Mireaus.
