Created to celebrate cultural diversity, Surrey’s Fusion Festival features performers and displays from a wide range of backgrounds. The city has become so culturally varied that it only makes sense to put this eclectic mix on full display. The event always takes place over the course of a weekend and this year it’s happening on July 21 and 22 in Holland Park on Old Yale Road.
Over 150 performers will hit the stage during the festival. Headlining this year’s event is Juno award winning group Walk Off The Earth. Also performing will be Ranjit Bawa, Wintermitts, Khanvict, Blue Strange, Bouna Vedere, and Dawn Pemberton to name a few. Aside from all the musical acts there will also be plenty of dance performances from a wide variety of cultural backgrounds.
In addition, there will be a host of highly acclaimed chefs from a variety of backgrounds on hand cooking up their cultural specialties. The Great Smartini will be here too to tell the story of the Magic of Canada in a way only he can. Different stages set up around the festival play host to all the different types of acts.
All ages are welcome at Fusion Fest. There is a ton here for the kids to explore including, Storyville, Kids World, Toddler Town, and the Sports Zone. Seniors also have a special place at the festival; the Age Friendly Activity Tent is for all those who seek healthy and active aging. A number of other fun booths will be set up around the festival to provide information, exciting activities, treats and surprises.
Of course, what would Fusion Fest be without cultural pavilions? Over 45 cultural groups will be represented at the festival and there will be many exciting pavilions here to explore.
