The Surrey Fusion Festival is an annual event that generally takes place at Holland Park in Surrey, BC. As we all know, 2020 hasn’t exactly gone according to plan; but that doesn’t mean you have to miss out on your favourite events!
The Surrey Fusion Festival is a well-known cultural celebration that will be running, with some minor adjustments, for their 12th year, this September. The festival will be a 90 minute, online live stream, where you will be able to view different cultural performances, take art and dance lessons, learn about Indigenous topics and the history of Surrey, watch cooking segments, and of course, enjoy musical entertainment, all from the comfort of your home!
The Surrey Fusion Festival is also doing an online contest this year with a virtual entry, to be entered to win one of two $200 gift cards to Uber Eats. How awesome is that? To enter the contest, there are 2 category options to choose from! All you need to do is send in a photo of a dish of food that can best represent your culture OR submit a video of yourself saying “Hello” in your language.
