Fusion Festival

More than 10,000 people joined in the excitement at the inaugural City of Gosnells Fusion Food and Culture Festival at Mills Park, Beckenham, on Friday.

With food from over 30 countries, live entertainment and interactive activities representing more than 50 cultures, the family friendly event was a huge success.

Energetic entertainment kept the crowds enthralled, including a show-stopping performance by African acrobats the Zimboys and interactive performances by Kranti Indian Dance Group, the WA Police Band, Jungle Body Southside and more.

Mayor Glenn Dewhurst said Fusion Festival was a colourful and positive celebration of diversity and multiculturalism within the City.

“It was terrific to see so many people at Mills Park embracing the community spirit of the new Fusion Festival, and enjoying a wide range of experiences that reflect our cultural diversity,” Mayor Dewhurst said.

“It was a great way for local community groups to raise funds while showcasing different aspects of their diverse and unique cultures.

“Most importantly, Fusion Festival was the perfect way for people from different cultural backgrounds to spend time together and make the most of a beautiful evening at our fabulous Mills Park.”

The City of Gosnells Fusion Food and Culture Festival was presented by Act Belong Commit, with contributions by hundreds of volunteers, performers and community groups and organisations.
