Metro Vancouver’s multiculturalism is on display at the annual, free Surrey Fusion Festival this weekend, July 21 – 22, 2012.
A huge festival that attracts 60,000+ people every summer, the Surrey Fusion Festival is part music festival—the 2012 line-up includes performances by Los Lobos, Good for Grapes, two-time JUNO award nominee Jeremy Fisher and multiple world music fusion groups like Ranj Singh and The Discriminators and Delhi 2 Dublin—and part multicultural fest, featuring 38 “cultural pavilions” that let you experience food and culture from around the world.
Both the free concerts and the cultural pavilions are major reasons to make the 45-minute drive from downtown Vancouver to Surrey’s Holland Park. Each cultural pavilion is like a mini travelogue for the 38 represented countries (including Canada, India, Ghana, Fuji, China, and Hong Kong); come hungry so you can take advantage of the authentic food served at each pavilion!
The free, two-day Surrey Fusion Festival runs July 21 – 22, 2012.
