The Fusion Food and Culture Festival will return to Mills Park over two huge nights on Friday 11 and Saturday 12 November, to celebrate the sights, sounds and tastes of the City’s multicultural community.
City of Gosnells Mayor Terresa Lynes said the festival was the City’s most popular event, which grew bigger and better each year.
“It’s amazing to see how the community has connected with the Fusion Food and Culture Festival, which draws crowds from our local suburbs and across the metropolitan area,” she said.
“With nearly half our residents born overseas, the City of Gosnells community is one of the most diverse in Western Australia, and the success of Fusion shows how much we love to celebrate and embrace this diversity.”
This year’s event will offer a captivating combination of live performances across two stages, roving entertainment, carnival rides and sideshow attractions, youth and children’s activities, over 50 food trucks serving delicious food from across the globe and much more.
Local multicultural community groups will share music, art, cultural displays, traditional dance and costumes at the Global Village.
“The Global Village is an important part of Fusion because it provides an opportunity for our local community groups to share what they do and connect with thousands of people over one weekend,” Mayor Lynes said.
“This year we also have String Symphony, an interactive art installation from the Spare Parts Puppet Theatre, where festival goers can become puppeteers and bring a giant puppet to life.”
New to this year’s event is a Safe Sensory Space in the Mills Park Library, where adults and children can go if the noise and bustle of the festival becomes overwhelming.
Entry to Fusion is free. Fusion is sponsored by Lotterywest, with support from Maddington Central Shopping Centre. The String Symphony art installation is supported by PrimeWest.
