The Fusion Festival returns to Holland Park in Surrey July 16th and 17th. Easily our favourite festival of the summer, this two-day event combines entertainment, education, cultural celebration, and hundreds of different food options.

Food
Portugese, Ukrainian, Mexican, Russian, whatever your taste buds are up for, you can probably find it at one of the food vendor tents (sorted by participating nation). We always get a Jamaican fruit smoothie, some type of flame-grilled meat (of which there is a lot in several different stalls), vegetable platers or whole mangos on a stick, and the kids love the taquitos.

Culture
Each country represented has a tent area where you can learn more about specific cultural events, browse clothing, and shop for unique trinkets and souvenirs. You can also take part in a pow wow presented by the Kla-how-eya Aboriginal Centre of SACS.
