CITY of Gosnells has announced the popular Multicultural Food Fair has been reborn as Fusion Festival.

The new event, which will celebrate food, art and culture, will take place from 4-9pm on Friday November 10 at Mills Park.

The re-branding is a result of the Multicultural Food Festival’s popularity, which saw it gradually outgrow its old home of Langford Oval over its 16-year history.

In addition to cooking demonstrations and food stalls, Fusion Festival will also feature global arts and crafts, entertainment and cultural activities.

Gosnells Mayor Olwen Searle said the festival would celebrate all aspects of the community’s rich cultural diversity.

“The Fusion Festival, celebrating food and culture, will revitalise the City’s annual multicultural celebration, providing greater opportunities to showcase and engage the many cultures that form the City of Gosnells,” she said.

Expressions of interest to be involved in Fusion are being sought from cultural groups, community groups and local businesses.

Applications to host a stall close on Monday September 11. Stallholder application form and guidelines can be found at www.gosnells.wa.gov.au/fusionfestival.

Regular updates will be made on the City’s Programs and Events Facebook page.
