Last year saw over 100,000 people flood the grounds for this free festival that boasts dozens of pavilions representing various nations and cultural group along with free family activities and entertainment.

Entertainment Line-Up

Announced this morning, rapper, singer and songwriter k-os will be the headliner on Saturday night and Shiamak Davar’s TOIFA Bollywood Remix will close out the festival on Sunday night.

Other confirmed acts so far for the free concert series include The Zolas, Kyprios, Jordan Klassen, along with Jim Byrnes and Steve Dawson.

I have been a sponsor of the Fusion Festival since its creation in 2008 when Surrey received the Cultural Capital of Canada designation and it’s always one of our favourite events to cover. We’re looking forward to a few new elements this year such as a Sunday morning matinee for kids with puppets, stories, singers and the BC Junior Talent Search winners.
