The City of Gosnells is looking for community members, cultural groups and organisations to take part in the City’s much-anticipated Fusion Food and Culture Festival in November.

This is one of the City’s largest annual events, run over two days at Mills Park in Beckenham, and last year over 30,000 people attended the festival.

Mayor Terresa Lynes said the festival offered a wonderful opportunity for local groups to be involved in the multicultural event and showcase their culture to the community.

“The continuing increase in attendance at each Fusion Festival demonstrates the community’s passion for being welcoming, inclusive and wanting to help to foster social cohesion by embracing diversity and showcasing the many cultures within our City,” she said.

“The City is proud of its culturally vibrant and diverse community – nearly half of our population was born overseas and over one-third of local people speak a language other than English at home.”

Activities such as arts and crafts, cultural demonstrations, traditional games or music and dance performances will be considered. Fusion Festival is a drug, alcohol and smoke free event and runs from 5pm to 9pm on Friday 11 November and Saturday 12 November.

Expressions of Interest in participating close at 5pm on Monday 12 September.
