Toronto’s Franco-Fête is created

The event used to be called Semaine Francophone (French Week).

Created by the Comité français de la Ville de Toronto, the event was incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1995 as the Franco-Fête de la Communauté urbaine de Toronto.

Over the years, it has showcased renowned Canadian artists of diverse backgrounds, including many Franco-Ontarian artists from Toronto and elsewhere in the province.
