Poutine from Friskie Fries food truck.

Learn about French Canadian culture while also indulging in Canada’s signature dish, poutine. The specialty involves crisp french fries smothered in gravy and topped with cheese curds, and it will be one of the highlights at the Museum of Work and Culture’s Bonjour Printemps Salute to Spring event on Sunday, April 3 , starting at 1:30 Woonsocket. Ticket holders will sip local beers and sample poutine versions prepared by the beloved Friskie Fries, Red’s Kitchen and Bonetown Burgers and BBQ’s food trucks. Wright’s Dairy Farm and Bakery will also serve desserts.

Soak up live music with the comforting food. Franco-American singer and songwriter Josée Vachon will perform two ticketed shows at 1:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. as well as the Good Living Band. Independent scholar Jeanne Douillard will also be on site to give a presentation about how French Canadians settled in New England: “Silent Presence – The French in New England,” will tell the complex, hidden story of her people in the Americas.

Guests will also participate in the creation of a twenty-fifth anniversary mural for the museum that will be on display in the museum’s gallery. The afternoon will conclude with the museum’s annual raffle, with a chance to win one of thirty gift certificates to area restaurants and entertainment venues, as well as the announcement of the winner of the sixth annual Poutine Indulgence.

Tickets are $25 with admission to Josée Vachon’s live performance, or $20 without the concert. Tickets can be purchased at
