The 2018 Fusion Food and Culture Festival is set to explode with colour and excitement at Mills Park in Beckenham on Saturday 10 November.

Between 3pm and 9pm, Mills Park will be transformed into a bright and energetic celebration of the City of Gosnells’ multicultural community.

Residents are invited to marvel at fireworks, wander through the global market stalls, check out arts and crafts, taste delicious multicultural food, take a whirl on the rides, view some amazing cultural performances and much more.

“Entry to the all-ages event is free and the extended opening hours for this year’s Fusion Festival will mean even more people can enjoy the festivities,” City of Gosnells Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said.

“The City of Gosnells is one of the most multicultural communities in our state. Our diversity is one of our greatest strengths and it’s something we can all be proud of, which is why the Fusion Festival is one of the biggest annual events on our calendar.

“It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.”

Residents are encouraged to avoid the parking crush by taking advantage of regular shuttle buses from Beckenham train station, straight to and from the venue.

Alternatively, community members can enjoy the great bike paths surrounding Mills Park, by riding their bikes and enjoying the secure red carpet VIP bike parking. There’s also a free Bike Dr check-up for cyclists, and prizes to be won.

Fusion Food and Culture Festival is presented by Healthway, promoting the Act-Belong-Commit message, and is sponsored by the Australian Government’s Department of Social Services and Examiner Newspapers.
